I'm not sure if I'm a social enterprise - how do I know?
Social enterprises can look like many different things. Some are trusts, others are companies, and many are charities and community organisations. Fundamentally, social enterprises are mission driven organisations that trade for a social or environmental purpose. They aim to earn a profit and reinvest some of it towards fulfilling that purpose.
