Social Enterprise in the Service of the Public research – June 2013

‘It has been extremely useful to open the doors of large public sectors organisations, mostly local authorities and health boards, to have a conversation about social enterprise models for service delivery. People who have no or little knowledge about social enterprise have learnt quickly and we have been able to engage with them on the subject. The case studies have provided good ground work on the dis/similarities of social enterprise and the different environments in which they work.’

Donna Coyle, Research Manager, Wales Co-operative Centre

‘In November 2011, the Wales Co-operative Centre published a report called ‘Social Enterprise in the Service of the Public’. The report explores both the benefits of, and barriers to, working with social enterprises in complementing the delivery of public services. It includes nine inspiring case studies of social enterprises from across Wales that work in a variety of public service sectors.  

It offers a number of recommendations for action by the three key stakeholders namely social enterprises, public sector commissioners, as well as the Wales Co-operative Centre/ sector support agencies. The recommendations are bold and specific.
