The British Council's Global Social Enterprise programme
The British Council's Global Social Enterprise programme promotes the development of social enterprise as a means of addressing entrenched social and environmental problems and delivering positive change to our communities and societies. Our work draws on UK and global experience and is delivered across 30 countries with local and international partners. Together, we: - provide social entrepreneurs with access to training, mentoring and funding opportunities - promote social enterprise education in schools and universities - convene policy dialogues, conduct research and organise study tours to share knowledge and best practice in creating an enabling environment for social enterprise - deliver international development actions funded by the EU, the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office and other partners that focus on social enterprise. It is a systemic approach designed to help foster a more sustainable, inclusive and prosperous future and build collaboration, opportunities and trust between the UK and other countries.
