Social enterprises are defined as an organisation which combines trade with a social purpose, where that purpose is a defining part of the business. Social Enterprises show us that it is viable to do business more sustainably, they build appeal for sustainable business models and change the parameters on what we as consumers, employees and investors see as possible (and often acceptable).
Councils and other organisations provide scaffolding and support for emerging and existing social enterprises. Social enterprises, in-turn, offer a point of difference in the revitalisation our municipalities and develop tangible ‘local’ outcomes in areas such as employment, tourism and sustainability.
