We’re celebrating Social Saturday!

October 09, 2015

This week we are celebrating Social Saturday which raises awareness across the UK of how easy it is to support social enterprises.

Social enterprises are businesses which exist to enable social or environmental change. When buying from a social enterprise you are not simply getting a great product, you are helping to improve the lives of the people who made it. This Saturday Social Enterprise UK is encouraging the public to buy social and have created a special online marketplace to enable you to do so.

Action Homeless is very proud to be a social enterprise and every penny that we receive in rent is reinvested back into our service, helping us to be there for more people who need us. We even have a cleaning and catering service, Action Trust, which provides our clients with training and employment opportunities, helping them to get back into work.

In September we were shortlisted for the UK Social Enterprise Awards 2015 in the Health and Social Care category and it is a huge achievement for us to be recognised at a national level for our hard work. We are now eagerly awaiting the results which are announced in November.

Take a look at the Social Enterprise UK website if you would like to find out more about social enterprises and Social Saturday.
