Hope backs social enterprise partnerships in London
Phil Hope, the minister for the third sector, will speak to London local authorities about the advantages of working with social enterprises next month as part of a conference organised by Social Enterprise London.
“We know that social enterprises that deliver services add value by bringing about social and environmental outcomes,” said Sabina Khan, director of research at Social Enterprise London. “We want to facilitate new opportunities for social enterprises to contract with local authorities and bring added benefits to their local community.”
John O’Brien, chief executive of London Councils, which represents the capital’s local authorities, will also address the event, which takes place on 19 June and will be attended by representatives from all 33 London boroughs.
