While the Jamaican landscape of social enterprise (SE) appears to be in its infancy, significant work has been done over the last 10 years to develop the sector, by international development partners, local private sector companies and domestic public bodies. This mapping exercise provides further insight on the current situation within which social enterprise in Jamaica operate; the current size of the sector; the barriers and challenges faced by these enterprises as they attempt to grow; issues around regulation and legislation; the tools and facilities that SEs need to grow and the legal framework that SEs can operate under.

The work was carried out by the British Council, FHI360, USAID, Social Enterprise UK
