The Social Enterprise Mark has been awarded to social enterprises in Scotland for the first time.
Five organisations received the mark, which recognises that organisations are trading for the benefit of society or the environment, rather than for shareholders or owners.
"We're very pleased to bring the Social Enterprise Mark to Scotland," said Colin Campbell, Senscot's development manager.
"Working alongside Rise and the first Scottish mark holders, we can show other social enterprises in Scotland how they will benefit from applying for the mark when it's launched nationally later this year.
"We believe many more social enterprises in Scotland will want the Social Enterprise Mark because Scottish customers want to understand when a business is trading for ‘people and planet'. The Social Enterprise Mark shows people when a business is truly socially motivated."
