Social enterprise


‘Social enterprise’ is not a legal definition, so it can mean a number of things. A ‘social enterprise’ could be:

  • A new company that aims to deliver services for social benefit
  • A trading arm of an existing charity
  • A way of working that involves thinking more broadly about generating income.

Together with some partner agencies, we can support anyone who is trying to establish any of these in Kensington & Chelsea with:

  • Developing the concept
  • Budgeting and financial planning
  • Writing a business plan
  • Thinking about new ways to generate income
  • Identifying the appropriate legal structure
  • Market research
  • Finding loans and other sources of financial support
