What can Social Enterprises contribute to the ‘levelling up’ agenda?

A new report commissioned by the Enterprise Research Centre in partnership with The Women’s Organisation highlights the positive impact of social enterprise across the UK and the vital role they can play in tackling regional inequalities.

The report recommends that society and policy would be well served by a broader interpretation of regional success, which incorporates wellbeing in a wider sense. This creates space for active participation of social enterprises, who already operate on a local level and often at the margin of the economic activity, developed on a needs-basis.

The second in a series of five research papers, the report also focuses on the lack of accessible funding and out-dated policy which, if improved, could play a pivotal role in the post-COVID-19 recovery as well as the Government’s plan to ‘level up’ the UK economy.
