Promoting socially and environmentally sustainable social enterprise

Social enterprise

There are numerous examples of successful social enterprise whose governance and leadership originates within local communities. Social enterprises typically are established to deliver social benefits such as better access to affordable low-cost housing or to healthcare in circumstances where market and/or government failures deny such access to the community. The success or otherwise of social enterprise models depends crucially on the governance, incentives and means of financing employed. EfD will identify, highlight and promote examples of best practice and support new ventures adopting best practice in our Focus Areas.
