I Would Love To Get Involved With A Work Of Heart!

We ‘re always looking for individuals to help make a change through art and volunteer work.

What is the difference between a Social Enterprise and a Charity?

A ‘social enterprise’ is a business which trades to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s lives or the environment.

Social enterprise can be a  difficult concept to grasp. A social enterprise might sound like charity work but they are businesses  trading for social and environmental purposes and there are two characteristics that they all display and these are;

  • That the enterprise sells goods and/or services in order to generate a profit;
  • That the enterprise use this profit to benefit society, instead of keeping it for private gain.

The goods or services they sell earn money and make profits like any business but it is what they do with the profits that is different.
