Early Day Motion in support of the social economy

Ask your MP to sign our Early Day Motion (EDM) to show their support for the Social Economy Alliance. You can find your local MP and write to them using the Write To Them website.

The more MPs that sign the EDM, the more likely they are to debate the social economy in the House of Commons, sending it up the political agenda. We've written a suggested letter below - which you can copy and paste into WriteToThem - but do write your own personal message if you have the time.


Please support and sign the EDM 971, backing the Social Economy Alliance – the campaign calling for a more social economy in Britain.

The Social Economy Alliance supports policies that put power in the hands of people, foster bottom-up economic growth and take advantage of the many innovations that the UK’s social sector has created. From community energy to housing, from business to public services, we believe that economic and social policy can and must reinforce one another.

 The UK needs an economy that better serves society.

Thanks for your support
