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.
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.
From its base in Blackpool, Social Enterprise Solutions has undertaken major funded programmes including Future Jobs Fund, LEGI and ERDF.
Our Strategic Vision
To assist in creating and developing dynamic and sustainable social enterprises which strengthen an inclusive and growing economy, providing opportunities for personal growth for people within communities many of whom face disadvantages.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to be recognised as the thought leaders in all aspects of social enterprise. We will encourage economic activity in less prosperous areas and support and mentor emerging and existing social enterprises so that they can engage in sustainable trading activities.
We believe that ethical enterprises add value to the economy and to society. Social enterprises make profits and provide employment. They offer volunteering opportunities and services to the community. Social enterprises are high value community assets to be nurtured and sustained.
