This report presents the findings of the Social Enterprise Census 2017, the definitive biennial account of social enterprise activity in Scotland.
The Social Enterprise Census 2017 is a collaborative effort to track the changing scale, characteristics and contribution of Scotland’s social enterprise sector every two years over the course of the next decade. It builds on the 2015 baseline study, and forms part of the Scottish Government’s long-term commitment to realising the full potential of the sector.
By ‘social enterprise’ the study refers to organisations that are trading for the common good – addressing social needs, strengthening communities, improving people’s life chances, and protecting the environment. They organisations analysed as part of the study operate in a way consistent with the Voluntary Code of Practice for Social Enterprise in Scotland .
The Social Enterprise Census is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind anywhere in the world and has included: the screening of over 20,000 organisations against the agreed definitional criteria; extraction and analysis of financial data from the public accounts of 4,439 social enterprises; and a representative survey of the population of social enterprises in Scotland, which yielded 1,351 responses.

The team here at Dundee SEN has been temporarily expanded as we host 2 members of staff on behalf of the Funeral Poverty Action Group. Margaret Clark and Diane Cameron are funded via the Social Innovation Fund with a remit to explore the challenges of Funeral Poverty and to investigate whether the social enterprise model could provide a solution here in Dundee.
They’re keen to connect locally with groups who’d be willing to engage in an awareness raising workshop on the cost and types of funeral and also with individuals who’ve experienced financial challenges in relation to the funeral of loved one. To find out more, please get in touch – Margaret@dundeesen.org on 01382 504848 or Diane@dundeesen.org on 07889 720171.
