The Hidden Revolution, supported by Nationwide and Co-op Group, presents fresh analysis of the size and scale of the social enterprise sector. According to independent analysis, the social enterprise sector makes a £60bn contribution to UK GDP, compared to £24bn in previous research. Social Enterprise UK’s analysis of data provided by Tussell on public sector contracts awarded to Community Interest Companies (CICs) has found that despite government’s commitment to opening up public sector contracts to a range of providers there has been little increase since 2016. This report published in partnership between the Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research (CEEDR) at Middlesex University London and Social Enterprise UK and supported by Power to Change examines community businesses that deliver health and wellbeing services to address the needs of individuals and communities - the challenges they face and how they can be supported.
