Social Enterprise and project management

A social enterprise is a business that trades for social and/or environmental purposes. For many, a social enterprise is an excellent opportunity for developing their organisation to achieve their person centred or environmental GOAL.

At Case-uk we support a wide range of organisations from community based groups, local authorities and private companies to investigate and establish suitable social enterprise structures. Key areas for consideration when seeking to establish a social enterprise includes: -

What is the purpose - What are you seeking to achieve by becoming a social enterprise? For example;

  • Provides an opportunity for local people to gain employment
  • Brings about a positive change to people and communities
  • Social benefits provides facilities to disadvantaged people
  • Profits/surpluses are ploughed back into the organisation to further the social, objectives. This could be used to develop new products/services/activities
  • People have more ownership
  • Provides a formal recognised structure for your enterprise
  • Gives the flexibility and freedom of being able to trade commercially whilst still fulfilling social aims

Social enterprises should:

  • Have a clear social and/or environmental mission set out in their governing documents
  • Generate the majority of their income through trade
  • Reinvest the majority of their profits back into their social objectives
  • Not linked to public sector organisation / the State
  • Be Managed and developed in the interests of the social mission
