Do it

Providing knowledge for you to partner, set up, convert or acquire social enterprise and reap the business benefit.

We want to help those housing organisations who have ambitions to include social enterprise activity as part of their ‘core’ offer. Here we aim to help you understand how you can partner with, set up your own, convert or acquire social enterprise. This section includes case studies and resources which will show you what others have done, the problems they encountered and how they were successful. This section is all about scale, impact and getting hands on experience of ‘doing’ social enterprise for yourself.

In order to finance the creation, acquisition or development of any business access to investment will be key. The Social Finance marketplace is growing rapidly and is ideally designed to support your social business plans. Find out more about the products and providers in the market and how housing organisations are successfully leveraging this new source of investment.
