Soapbox: Boost your social status

25 June 2008

In this issue's Soapbox, Lesley Miller from Social Enterprise London explains how buyers can boost their use of social enterprises.

"So how can you achieve all this? Proactive market development may be needed to build a social enterprise supply base. Contact third sector networks and arrange "meet the buyer" days to find out about social enterprises that operate locally. Also, use open tendering portals and trade journals to advertise contract opportunities widely. Some social enterprises may have limited experience of competing for contracts, so training and skills development may be appropriate."

Are you actively trying to do business with social enterprises?
