We’re taking action to empower communities by supporting social entrepreneurs to create sustainable businesses.
Social enterprise is a significant and fast growing part of the UK economy and social enterprises exist across all sectors. Social enterprises tend to be more inclusive than mainstream businesses, they're often led by a more diverse group of people, they're more likely to employ people who are disadvantaged in the labour market and they often operate in geographic areas of deprivation.
So working with them, sharing the skills of our people and supporting their growth goes to the heart of our purpose and is a key piece of our social mobility programme. Our work with social enterprises encompasses both our award winning PwC Social Entrepreneurs Club and our commitment to Buy Social. We're also proud of our social enterprise hub in London, The Fire Station, which drives growth and collaboration in the sector by bringing together leading social enterprise organisations, including Social Enterprise UK, the School for Social Entrepreneurs and our own social enterprise bistro Brigade.
