Many local authorities are actively considering how to deliver existing services in new, innovative ways. There are demands to have a similar, or greater, level of service maintained from a lower cost base and not controlled directly by the local authority.
One model is to spin-out the service to become a standalone company that operates for the social good – a social enterprise.
Social Enterprise Solutions has the expertise to aid public bodies in delivering every aspect of the journey from in-house department to standalone business.
When the externalisation of services is executed effectively, with full consultation and on an appropriate model basis, social enterprises have been shown to deliver excellent results, more reflective of the needs of society. Furthermore as they are responsible for their own budgets, they often deliver at a lower cost than the equivalent council operated department.
