“Economic benefit, social impact, community ownership, neighbourhood potential”
The term “social enterprise” covers a very wide group of business, charitable and voluntary activities. Across the UK, and especially in Cornwall, these businesses and organisations are increasingly providing jobs, services and economic benefit for the sort of communities we work with every day.
New models of ownership, of measuring “benefit” and of providing public services create an opportunity to transform neighbourhoods and the lives of people living there. Working with partners on projects such as Engine Room and the Social Enterprise Zone we can offer advice, support, skills development and even a home base for social enterprises of all shapes and sizes.
