About social enterprise
A social enterprise is a business model where profit is reinvested to fulfil social objectives or grow the business, rather than to maximise profit for shareholders or owners.
If you are running a social enterprise, would like to set one up or would just like to know more about social enterprise, you can find further information and support below:

The SPARK Project
West Sussex County Council has previously run targeted support initiatives for social enterprises.
The SPARK Project ran from 2016-2020. It aimed to support social enterprises in developing and delivering sustainable and high impact innovations, leading to increased growth. Although the project is now closed, you can still access some of the resources online.
