This Social Enterprise Day we'd like to take a moment to raise awareness of our pioneering business model and celebrate the more than 100,000 social enterprises in the UK working to benefit people and planet.
Social enterprises are businesses that trade for a social or environmental purpose. Like any other business, we look to make a profit, but it is what we do with that profit that sets us apart: reinvesting the majority to further our vital mission creating employment for those experiencing major barriers to securing a job.
"I love working for Jubilee Events, it's helped me so much with getting back into work - something that looked far away a year ago. It's allowing us all to build friendships by helping each other grow to become our best."
As part of the social enterprise community, we like to ‘buy social’ and support others in the sector – so we encourage you to do the same. With lots of us shopping for the festive season, why not look for presents with purpose? Check out Social Enterprise UK’s Gift Guide and eBay shop, where you can get a 10% discount with code SEDAY10.
If you're looking to hold an event in 2024 or beyond talk to us about how we can help you achieve an excellent day that also has a positive social impact!
Whether it’s creating jobs and opportunities for people on the margins, delivering people=powered public services or taking on the climate emergency, social enterprises are showing us that another way of doing business is possible – one that puts people and the planet first. We are proud to be part of this movement.
