On the announcement of Boris as our new PM, Peter Holbrook, Chief Executive, Social Enterprise UK said:

“Our new Prime Minister enters office at a time of great uncertainty and division. Although Brexit might be the most urgent item on his desk today, his focus needs to be on building a new economy which can bring people together and spread wealth across the country. This is the great challenge of our time.”

“The last Prime Minister made the mistake of ignoring the social enterprise sector and its potential to deliver the change the country wants. I hope that Boris learns from this and reaches out to social enterprise.”

“He can start today by moving social enterprise out of DCMS and into BEIS. This will send a powerful signal that he wants to unleash the dynamism of our sector. I hope that Boris grasps this opportunity so he can deliver his bold promise of optimism for the country.”
