The headline facts

The executive summary of our State of Social Enterprise report 2023 contains the latest key statistics on the scale and impact of our sector across the UK.


It shows  a growing sector that is not only profitable and productive but truly pioneering. We estimate that there are 131,000 social enterprises across the country, representing almost one in 42 of all UK businesses – and we find they are not only helping people and planet but also boosting our economy, turning over around £78 billion and re-investing £1 billion in profit into their vital missions.
