Support for Social Enterprise
How we can help
Our experience allows us to help organisations to measure the results of their work and use evidence to learn and improve performance. For social enterprise organisations, this means using the results of their work and impact to inform future decisions and implement quality standards.
Our work with social enterprises
Social enterprises need to balance both their social and financial goals. More and more, they need to provide evidence of the impact and value of their work, as well as ensuring low financial risk and high standards.
Many of the services provided by Charities Evaluation Services are relevant to all types of social organisations and not just charities, but we also have dedicated resources to meet the more specialised needs of social enterprises, community interest companies and industrial and provident societies.
