Social Enterprise UK response to the local elections
Commenting on the May 2023 local elections, Peter Holbrook CEO of Social Enterprise UK said:
Social Enterprise UK sends warm congratulations to candidates who were elected during last week’s Local Elections. We have seen significant shifts in council make-up across the country. People want their local councillors to ensure community services work for them, that local issues are addressed, and that democracy delivers. Social enterprises are playing an increasingly valuable role in supporting local communities, delivering economic prosperity, and bringing people together to address local challenges. We hope that newly elected representatives will take time to engage with local social enterprises and support them through this period of economic uncertainty.
