Prospecting the Future: Social Enterprise and Finance Data from 2011 - 2015
‘Prospecting the future’ provides a snapshot of social enterprises operating in the UK and their finances. The research draws on findings gathered between 2011 and 2015.
The report by Social Enterprise UK and the Access Foundation has found that social enterprises are increasingly in need of working capital to finance their operations and deliver contracts. The report also found that larger amounts of finance were likely to be raised by social enterprises in the most deprived areas, and that a large minority continue to apply for grants as part of their income mix.
