About Social Saturday

Social Saturday is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the difference that social enterprises are making in communities on your doorstep and around the world, and to encourage you to support these businesses when making your purchasing decisions. Social enterprises are businesses that put people and planet first, by re-investing their profits to provide training, employment, housing, health, education, clean water and much more.

The campaign is led by the national body for social enterprises, Social Enterprise UK (SEUK) and is supported by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Co-op. Find out more at https://www.socialenterprise.org.uk/socialsaturday
