Voices of social entrepreneurs in the valleys have been amplified

Economy passion led us here quote


Strong economies are ones that are diverse and have different kinds of businesses and business models, and businesses that are connected to the places they are based.

Social entrepreneurs are often locally rooted and their business is usually in response to a local issue or challenge. They are driven by social purpose and often have better terms of employment for the people they employ.


Doubling the amount of social enterprises will help create a more diverse and resilient local economies. Policy makers that better understand the journey and experiences of social entrepreneurs can help create an environment in which they can thrive and be supported to start up, grow and thrive


Our work on building strong economies has shown the big difference social entrepreneurs make in Wales and in their communities. It has shone a light on day-to-day challenges and experiences of being a social entrepreneur and raised awareness of why it matters.
