Social Enterprise in Scotland Census 2019 launched

The latest social enterprise census was launched this week at the CEIS Social Enterprise Policy & Practice Conference.

Unveiled by Communities and Local Government Minister Aileen Campbell MSP, Social Enterprise in Scotland 2019 indicates that there are now over 6000 social enterprises operating in Scotland, generating over £3bn of annual income.

The figures confirmed that social enterprise in Scotland continues to be made up primarily of small, locally-focussed enterprises, with 26% of SEs operating within a single neighbourhood or community and 57% operating within a single local authority area.
