In our third podcast, we are chatting to social enterprises that work with people who are recovering from addiction, have experienced homelessness and may have been in contact with the criminal justice. We discuss how social enterprises are on the front line, often providing access to employment, food, affordable energy and other critical services to those who are struggling. They can also inspire business to become more innovative and impactful. And, not least, they can challenge established social systems to better address societal challenges. We also highlight what policy makers and public and private procurement can do differently to ensure social enterprises can tender successfully for contracts.
