Support for Social Enterprises
Occurring this year on the 14th of October, Social Saturday is an annual campaign aiming to raise awareness of the difference that social enterprises are making in communities, not only locally, but also around the world. Social enterprises are businesses that put people and the planet first through re-investing their profits to provide training, employment, housing, health, education, clean water and much more.
Check out some of the great social enterprises that exist around the country online through Social Enterprise UK and see how you can support them! Find out more here.
Social Saturday: 15th October 2016
Support local and national social enterprises on Saturday 15th October with Social Saturday; an annual day of activity to celebrate and raise awareness of UK social enterprises.
There are a growing number of social enterprises in the UK, with more than 70,000 currently operating across a variety of sectors and industries. These companies need to make a turnover like any other business, but their profits are distributed to worthy causes which make a difference to people’s lives and the world around us.
There are lots of ways you can support social enterprises on Social Saturday (and every other day too!), and it’s not all about spending money. Take pictures, shout out and tweet how great it is to support social enterprises and the work that they do.
Find out more by visiting the Social Saturday website here.
