“This guide is for big businesses and other organisations interested in buying goods and services from the UK’s social enterprise sector.
Social enterprises are different to ordinary businesses because they reinvest their profits for good, benefiting people and planet. When they profit, society profits.
There are 70,000 social enterprises operating in the UK in almost every industry: from construction to catering, transport to training, healthcare to housing, finance to facilities management, and recycling to regeneration.
Consumers, councils, charities and private sector businesses are all their customers.
Make a purchase from a social enterprise and join the growing number of people and organisations already buying social.”
