Achieve Social Enterprise Excellence
When milestones are reached, where does your social enterprise head next? If being the best at what you do is one of your goals, how do you know you’re on course to achieve this?
The Social Enterprise Gold Mark is a prestigious accolade, which demonstrates your organisation has been through a rigorous external assessment process to achieve a recognised social enterprise quality standard.
It offers enhanced accreditation to social enterprises which can show best practice in proof points across three key business areas:
- business ethics
- financial transparency and social impact
It is not just about social impact, it’s about measuring the different elements which make a great social enterprise excellent. The Social Enterprise Gold Mark is the only quality mark to provide a comprehensive framework for achieving social enterprise excellence.
The Gold Mark was launched at the House of Commons in 2014, and there is now a growing network of gold standard accredited social enterprises, including Integrated Care 24, York St John University, and University of Northampton.
