The event aims to be a friendly 90 minute conversation. Election candidates will speak for a few minutes, followed by your constructive questions. Please note that this is a specific social enterprise debate and constructive conversation and questions should be about issues facing the social enterprise community, key challenges and positive opportunities for solutions.

  • Taking a global outlook
  • Social enterprise at the heart of the Scottish Business Pledge
  • Transforming public services
  • Driving business support forward
  • Boosting social investment and funding
  • Targeted tax cuts for social enterprises
  • Valuing interns, volunteers and apprentices
  • Social enterprise in our schools
  • Local solutions as standard
