Practical Support

We know that at SEUK we do not have all the answers on how to deal with Covid-19 and we recognise that even though this crisis will affect all businesses how it does will vary immensely from sector to sector. These resources will be updated regularly and if there’s anything specific you’d like us to help you with contact covid19@socialenterprise.org.uk. Equally, one of our strengths as a membership body is our network of social enterprises from across sectors. We’ll be working with our members to ensure we can be of most use to as many social enterprises as possible. You can find out more about our plans to support our community through this crisis in this webinar which was delivered by our Chief Executive, Peter Holbrook and our Director of External Affairs, Andrew O’Brien on 18 March.
