Social enterprise

The Office of the Third Sector's responsibilities include national policy on social enterprise. Our social enterprise activity is focused on working across government to create an environment in the UK for social enterprises to thrive. Our vision is of a dynamic and sustainable social enterprise sector contributing to a stronger economy and a fairer society.

The Government's commitments to support social enterprise are set out in the Social enterprise action plan, which includes actions to raise awareness of social enterprise, ensure social enterprises have the right support, advice and finance, and enable them to work with government.
