How Social Enterprises Are Transforming Societies

Duncan Thorp, Policy and Communications Officer at Social Enterprise Scotland, writes for the Scotsman about empowering community groups, local authorities and social enterprises.

Thorp writes, “Our aim is to see Scotland going forward as a social enterprise nation and to use any newly-devolved powers to achieve this aim…. We want this journey to a new Scotland to include social enterprises of all types and sizes and in every sector and community in Scotland. By developing these models we are creating a new, urgently-needed economic culture that actually provides things for people – and at the same time solves entrenched social issues.”
