This research is based on the responses of social enterprises to a survey looking in depth at the impact of COVID-19 on social enterprises; how social enterprises are adapting to the crisis and how they can be better supported through it.

The report shows that social enterprises are at the forefront of solutions to the crisis, on the health and social care front line and providing crucial community support to the most vulnerable. It also shows that many social enterprises are struggling, falling through the cracks in support and leaving their communities, beneficiaries and staff exposed.
