Setting up a Social Enterprise in NI

Social enterprises are businesses that trade to address social problems, improve communities, people’s quality of life, or the environment, with profits reinvested to achieve these goals

Social entrepreneur launches Kith & Kin

Social entrepreneur Sean Bruen saw a gap in the market for an organisation providing the community with access to free, trusted financial advice - Kith & Kin was launched in 2016

Social enterprises trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people's life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits.


Many of our LEAs are Social Enterprises.
