With a wide range of supporters and key influencers in National and Local government, as well as innovators from the private sector, people see the social enterprise way of doing business as key to creating solutions for BIG society.

88.2% of commissioners* said that (assuming other contract requirements were met) they would prefer a bidder that has a public service ethos. Decision-makers want to work with and procure from social enterprises, but until now have not been able to easily identify them. This is where the Mark can help – our searchable directory{link} of Mark holders lists social enterprises working in many different industries, from recycling to housing, to health and care, to transport, to culture and leisure.

We are

  • striving to learn the lessons from the Fairtrade journey and hope to echo its growth
  • partnering with business innovators such as O2 and the Local Data Company to bring the Mark holders to a much wider audience.
  • looking for exciting collaborations and opportunities to extend the reach of the Social Enterprise Mark. Perhaps its you?
