Social Enterprises

Social enterprises are businesses that trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people's life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits.

Social enterprises are in our communities and on our high streets - from coffee shops and cinemas, to pubs and leisure centres, banks and bus companies.
