Social Enterprise London to publish guide for wannabe social enterprises

Publication, expected next week, has been put together with London Councils

A guide for public sector workers who are interested in turning the services they provide into social enterprises will be published by Social Enterprise London.

The guide, published in partnership with London Councils, will provide information for workers about the advantages of setting up a social enterprise and the potential benefits for the users of local authority services.

The full publication will cost £10, although some of the resources will be available on the SEL website for free. It is expected to be out next week.

"The government is committed to supporting social enterprise, and it’s encouraging public workers to spin out their services," said Matt Jarratt, membership and communications manager at SEL. "However, we need to develop a culture of social enterprise among public sector workers.

"As well as explaining the advantages of social enterprise, this document also talks about how to go about getting buy-in from the relevant stakeholders, from the public to the local authority."
