Trading for Good was commissioned by Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales to provide greater depth of understanding into the work of social enterprises, particularly small and medium-sized social enterprises. 

The report shows the important impact social enterprises are having on some of the poorest communities in the UK and calls for more to be done to encourage Government, funders and the public to ensure social enterprises are supported. Focusing on small-medium sized social enterprises it demonstrates that start up rates are high, that they are more diverse in their leadership than traditional SMEs, and that they are working directly in the communities that need them most.
