Social Summer campaign #SocialSummer2018


Join our new Social Summer campaign  #SocialSummer2018

This summer we’re launching a new public campaign #SocialSummer2018 - to inspire the public to get out during their holidays and visit the many social enterprises across Scotland and the UK.

Read our new article about the campaign and why we're doing it.

Our brilliant social enterprise community is thriving and making a real difference. It offers a wealth of activities and shopping experiences during the summer holidays including sports centres, gift shops, places to stay, theatres, outdoor activities, cafes and many other places that people can visit.

This new campaign is run in partnership with Social Enterprise Northern Ireland, the Wales Co-operative Centre and Social Enterprise UK and will follow a digital road map, featuring different social enterprises each day - showcasing the amazing variety and diversity of social enterprises.

#SocialSummer2018 will run from 1 June to 31 August. We’ve identified a strong mix of 23 social enterprises from across Scotland that are open to the public and will be part of the roadmap - in addition we’ll promote any others that are open to the public - a unique opportunity to showcase social enterprise to a big UK-wide and global audience!

We’ll be sharing regular updates on our Twitter feed and in the Social Enterprise Weekly magazine and monthly versions plus on our website. Please do:

  • Forward this campaign info on to all your contacts
  • Include a campaign news item in any bulletins
  • Share the campaign on social media using #SocialSummer2018
  • Mention the campaign at events and meetings

We look forward to further raising the public profile of our brilliant social enterprise community - thanks for taking part!
