Last week the Scottish Government published the new 'Building a Sustainable Social Enterprise Sector in Scotland - Action Plan 2017-20' which includes a £3million investment for social entrepreneurs. It is aimed at boosting the sector by offering support to people and communities.
"...the plan will ensure that social enterprises play a central role in business and community life for many years to come."
The plan also includes 92 commitments to realise its aims with some focusing on demonstrating the social value and impact of the social enterprise sector in Scotland. One key actions will involve the Scottish Government supporting Assist Social Capital to pilot our Unlocking Potential social capital evaluation tool for social enterprises in partnership with some Social Enterprise Networks.
