FINANCE NEWS: Guide published to help groups form social enterprises

Social Enterprise London has published a book to help voluntary organisations in health and social care become sustainable social enterprises.

Care Sector - A framework for social enterprise creation argues that while many voluntary organisations are well placed to meet the needs of different disadvantaged groups, they face challenges in making the transition to becoming a successful social enterprise.

Social Enterprise London's business development manager Jilla Jamfar said: "Existing staffing, management and corporate governance structures may require radical changes, the organisation's ethos may need to evolve and there may be resistance to change."

The book includes an overview of current government frameworks, a social enterprise business planning guide and a collection of real-life case studies. There is also a directory of useful contacts of sector organisations.
