Today is Social Enterprise Day 2020 – part of Global Entrepreneurs Week and a day to raise the profile of social enterprise around the world. To mark the event we’re partnering with Social Enterprise UK (of which we’re a member) and other social enterprise support bodies around the world who are running #WhoKnew – a digital campaign to allow social enterprises to shout out loud about the impact they’re having in their communities.
We’re proud to be part of a city with an important history of social innovation and contribute to the #WhoKnew campaign…
- #WhoKnew that Bradford gave us Titus Salt’s workers village in the 1800s; William Forster’s work on the first national education policy; our schools were the first to offer free meals to children.
- #WhoKnew the city was the first UNESCO City of Film, as well as the birthplace of the Independent Labour Party.
We’re one of many custodians of this legacy of social impact and though we are ourselves a social enterprise, we hope to be the place where a new generation of social enterprises find their start.
