HMG has had a longstanding policy to support social enterprises, as an important part of a growing economy and a stronger society. Current areas of focus include:
- The forthcoming Civil Society Strategy will put social enterprises at the core of civil society and address strengthening the impact of the Social Value Act.
- The Crown Representative for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sectors will ensure that social enterprises have a powerful voice in both commissioner and supplier communities.
- In June the Minister for the Cabinet Office announced a package of measures for the future of public service delivery which will increase the focus on social value in public procurement.
- We also continue to support and promote public service mutuals, many of which are social enterprises, and social enterprise awareness campaigns such as Social Saturday.
