About: The Social Enterprise Coalition is the UK’s national body for social enterprise. The Coalition represents a wide range of social enterprises, regional and national support networks and other related organisations. We work with our members to:

  • Promote the benefits of social enterprise through press work, campaigns and events. For example, we are leading a consortium to deliver the Social Enterprise Ambassadors programme, an Office of the Third Sector funded initiative. Over 30 passionate people, have been chosen to use their powerful stories to illustrate the benefits of social enterprise;
  • Share best practice amongst social enterprises through networks and publications. A key part of the Coalition’s work is to enable social enterprises to share know how, network and do business. We publish a range of case studies, ‘how to’ guides and training materials;
  • Inform the policy agenda working with key decision makers. Our aim is to improve the operating environment for social enterprise by advising government, informing consultations and hosting policy events. We influence politicians across the political spectrum, generating support for social enterprise;
  • Undertake research to expand the social enterprise evidence base. We are currently gathering up-to-date information from a national membership survey to inform government policy.
