How to harness social entrepreneurs

Year of Publication: 

UnLtd report suggests how social entrepreneurs can be harnessed to achieve improved employment rates for people with a disability. 

With support from DWP and Scope, UnLtd convened a roundtable of social entrepreneurs, civil servants and other key stakeholders at Caxton House. By gathering the insights of each organisation at the roundtable, they were able to identify ways to ensure that more social entrepreneurs can start and scale-up innovations to reduce the disability employment gap. This document summarises the insights and the resulting recommendations that sit within five key themes: data, funding, support, procurement and recognition.

The report references the work of the Supported Busainbess Steering Group in developing the EESG proof of concept with DWP.
