What is a Social Enterprise?
A Social Enterprise is a business that trades in order to provide goods and services in the community, tackle problems in society and address environmental issues. Profits generated from trading are reinvested back into the business or local community. Examples of social enterprises could be a community café or shop, a recycling or upcycling project or a workshop creating products for sale – perhaps providing training or employment for marginalised groups.
The Social Enterprise Expansion and Development (SEED) Project aims to build a more vibrant and sustainable social enterprise sector, and help groups to build their capacity to trade successfully. This project is a joint collaboration between Bray Area Partnership and Southside Partnership covering the following areas: Bray and Greystones Municipal Districts and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown.
