Scotland's Social Enterprise Strategy 2016-2026

This ten-year, national social enterprise strategy sets out our shared ambitions for social enterprise in Scotland, jointly developed with the sector. It provides a framework for action over the next decade. 

Social enterprise models inclusive growth and this strategy will support the aim of sustainable economic growth, tackling inequalities and building a fairer Scotland.

The strategy focuses on three main priorities:

1) Stimulating social enterprise

2) Developing stronger organisations

3) Realising market opportunities
