Supporting a Social Economy

Founded in the North West as one of the UK’s first community interest companies, Social Enterprise Solutions is a pioneering body of social entrepreneurs delivering National and European programmes of business support and community development.


Whether it is grass-roots events to help local people, employment initiatives or big ideas like Social Enterprise Places, the team is committed to helping communities to achieve more.

Oxfordshire is the first county in Britain to be officially named as a ‘Social Enterprise Place’ by Social Enterprise UK. Oxfordshire is committed to growing social enterprise communities across the county by bringing together the local councils, universities, businesses, charities, budding social entrepreneurs and local residents.

Rt. Hon. Prime Minister MP, David Cameron, said: “It’s fantastic that Oxfordshire is the first county to become a Social Enterprise Place – a beacon of social enterprise activity. Social enterprises trade to tackle some of the greatest challenges we face, from unemployment to food waste. Social Saturday is a great way to raise awareness of the vital and growing role social enterprises play in our economy and local communities in Oxfordshire and across the country. The UK is home to the largest and fastest growing social enterprise sector.”
