Take part in Scotland’s Social Enterprise Census
Every two years, the Scottish Government produces a major report on the state of the social enterprise sector. The report draws on information from the main regulators as well as survey evidence from the sector.
If your organisation has social or environmental goals and generates income through contracts or fees of any kind, then you are invited to take part in the census. You could be doing anything from running a village hall, to providing arts activities, childcare, transport, or social care services.
This official study helps inform policy and funding, and shows the impact of the sector in your area. Coming out of the COVID crisis, this is a critical point to look at the situation facing organisations like yours.
Announcing the launch of the Social Enterprise Census survey, Shona Robison, Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Housing and Local Government said:
‘I am delighted to confirm that the 4th biennial Social Enterprise Census survey is now live and would encourage everyone in the Social Enterprise sector to take 10 minutes to fill it out. The census is an example of how the Scottish Social Enterprise sector continues to be world leading. The valuable data that is collected is published and made available to all and ensures that the decisions that we take as a government have the greatest impact, helping to ensure that Social Enterprises in Scotland realise their full potential.’
