Lewisham Council - Social enterprise in Lewisham

Social enterprise

If your business helps people or communities you might be a social enterprise. Get advice and support in starting up or running your business. 

Social enterprises are businesses that have social objectives. These businesses could:

  • tackle social problems
  • improve communities
  • improve people's life chances, or
  • improve the environment.

Social enterprises reinvest their profits into their business or the local community. This means when they profit, society profits.
