Social + Local
The Social+Local Enterprise Alliance is an initiative to establish a series of local enterprises which will fuel a genuine local economy in an area designated as disadvantaged. Each business is commercial where gaps and opportunities are identified but all profits are re-invested back into Social+ Local to further fuel more local economy. In that respect it can also be seen as a series of social enterprises.
Under Social+Local we established 3 initial local businesses that are up and running and building towards that vision of a new culture of local and social enterprise.
