This strategy sets out our route map towards the development of a more vibrant and sustainable social enterprise community in Glasgow.Social enterprise is a way of doing business; a better way of doing business. Social enterprises operate for more than profit alone, they foster social and environmental innovation, they are ethical in their motivations, and they are accountable to their employees, consumers and communities
We want to build on the achievements of Glasgow, and help foster a more supportive environment in which social enterprise can flourish. We want Glasgow to be recognised as the UK’s leading City of Social Enterprise. This reflects the strong tradition of social enterprise activity and the pioneering spirit and confidence that exists in the city.
This strategy is the culmination of a rigorous process of research and consultation. The priorities set out in the document have been shaped with the active involvement of more than 100 social enterprises and representatives from the city’s key institutions.
We believe that this strategy will be important in realising the full potential of social enterprise.
