Scottish Government has launched the second of its 3 Social Enterprise Action Plans.
“Inclusive Growth Through Social Enterprise (2021 – 2024)” reasserts Scottish Government’s long-term vision of social enterprise at the forefront of a new wave of ethical and socially responsible business in Scotland, becoming central to the way Scotland chooses to do business.
The plan sets out key areas of policy, work and investment that will support the priorities of Scotland’s Social Enterprise Strategy (2016 – 2026), and how Scottish Government will act to:
- work across government, and with national agencies, to create the conditions, opportunities and investment necessary for social enterprises to fully realise their potential
- develop the national ecosystem of support for social enterprises, ensuring that it remains fit-for-purpose and world-leading
- work closely with sector partners to support the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic whilst also looking to raise ambitions, grow capacity, spur innovation, and ensure the sector is ready to seize opportunities
- develop a third sector equalities baseline, to ensure that all activity supported by the Third Sector Unit is calibrated to tackling the barriers faced by people with protected characteristics (with a focus on social enterprise as the first action area)
