An enterprising third sector
We believe that an enterprising third sector is a vital source of economic growth, a key support for our most vulnerable communities, and a critical part of the reform of public services in the UK.
The Social Value Lab brings a deep understanding of the third sector in its many forms:
- Community groups
- Voluntary organisations
- Social enterprises
- Social firms
- Development trusts
We believe in the potential of social enterprise. We view ‘social enterprise’ as a behavioural characteristic rather than an organisational form i.e. as a thing you do, rather than a thing you are. As such, we understand its potential to transform the way that business is conducted and the way in which public services are delivered.
Our staff and associates draw on many years of working in, with, and for enterprising third sector organisations.
