Winter 2013 Go Full Circle e-mail banner v1Go Full Circle was first run in September, as a campaign dedicated to raising awareness of social enterprise in Wales.

Now, as we approach Christmas, we’ll be promoting the role of social enterprises, co-operatives and other community-based organisations at this time of year.

Over the next fortnight, we’ll be putting the best of Welsh social enterprise produce in the ‘virtual’ shop window, while demonstrating how other organisations support those who are facing a difficult festive season.

It’s important to remember that social enterprises are businesses, aiming to make a profit. What makes them really important, and different, are their social and/or environmental aims. Profits are ploughed back into their community for the benefit of its people, creating jobs, training opportunities and often protecting the local environment.

We want the people of Wales to understand what a social enterprise is, take a look at our directory and support social enterprises in their communities now, and throughout the year.

Between 9th and 22nd December, you will see items on our blog site, Facebook page, Twitter feed and other social media sites. If you’re tweeting about the campaign, please try to use the hashtag #gofullcircle.
