Political Engagement

We are a strategic partner to government and have led public policy on social enterprise for 15 years. Working closely with our members and partner organisations, we promote the benefits of social enterprise to the country’s decision makers. By influencing politicians and the political parties who shape policy development, we aim to remove barriers to social enterprises, and create a business environment that encourages their growth and success. SEUK’s political work is supported by The Co-operative Energy, CAN, Fusion 21, and First Ark Group.
