A ten-year, national social enterprise strategy, which sets out our shared ambitions for social enterprise in Scotland, jointly developed with the sector. It provides a framework for action over the next decade.

Executive Summary

This ten-year, national social enterprise strategy sets out our shared ambitions for social enterprise in Scotland, jointly developed with the sector. It provides a framework for action over the next decade.

Social enterprise models inclusive growth and this strategy will support our aim of sustainable economic growth, tackling inequalities and building a fairer Scotland.

This strategy will build on the supportive ecosystem, developed over the previous decade, and will cement our reputation as world-leading and the best place to start and grow a social enterprise.

The strategy focuses on three main priorities:

1) Stimulating social enterprise

2) Developing stronger organisations

3) Realising market opportunities

These will be developed into a series of action plans spanning the decade, the first of which will be published in 2017.
