Organised by Social Enterprise UK, Social Saturday is the national campaign aiming to increase awareness and support for social enterprises, drawing attention to the inspiring and impactful work they do. It's an opportunity for social enterprises to shout loud and proud about their businesses and the movement they are part of, and a chance for the public to show their support by buying from them.
The focus of this year’s campaign is around the ways in which social enterprises are creating a more equal society through business.
Activity will be happening all week, starting on Monday 8th October and culminating on Saturday 13th. There will be loads of events happening right across the country - from markets and workshops to fairs and performances - and plenty of social enterprises open to visit. Keep an eye on the Social Saturday map to find out what's on this year.
There are plenty of ways to get involved! Take a look at the info packs for ideas.
