Who are we?
The Social Economy Alliance is a new voice on the economy. We're made up of orgnisations including social enterprises, co-operatives, universities, housing associations, crowd-funders, social investors, think tanks and charities. We're campaigning to create a more social economy in the UK - one that better supports people and communities. We believe social enterprises and cooperatives hold many of the solutions to our biggest economic and social challenges, but they need government backing. We're calling on for all the main politicial parties to support the social economy by building our recommendations into their manifestos.
Take a look at pictures from the launch of the Alliance with Jo Swinson MP, Lord Heseltine, Stella Creasy MP and Guardian columnist Zoe Williams. You can also watch our video, Feel the Force or read more about our media coverage.
