Can you help us? Information request about LAs and social enterprises

leave a comment »

Can you help us to identify Welsh local authorities that have been working closely with social enterprises? Ideally, we’re looking for authorities that:

  • Involve social enterprises at an early stage in the commissioning process
  • Inform heads of departments and elected members of the benefits of working with social enterprises
  • That have addressed the procurement process and the barriers that social enterprises often face e.g. size of contracts, complexity of process, timeline for completing applications
  • That use social clauses to facilitate the added value of social enterprise activity
  • That have a central contact point (‘champion’) for social enterprises

If you can offer any information on this, please could you get in touch with Donna Coyle,  Research & Development Officer at the Wales Co-operative Centre – donna.coyle@walescoop.com. Many thanks.
