Social enterprises are dynamic businesses with a conscience working in the UK and internationally to deliver lasting social and environmental change. Well known social enterprises include Cafedirect, The Big Issue, The Co-operative Group, the Eden Project and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen, but there are thousands more operating in a wide range of industries from farmers' markets and recycling companies to transport providers and childcare. This landmark text considers how a social enterprise can sustain and develop its activities, and compares the way we measure success in social organisations to other forms of business.
