What social enterprises need to know about the Localism bill

Guardian's Social Enterprise Network

LGiU Chief Executive, Andy Sawford, took part in a Q&A session with the Guardian’s Social Enterprise Network. Below is a summary of what he said –

The issue of how community organisations will interact with local authorities around setting up social enterprises is pertinent. Councils are interested in being enablers of social enterprises. It is in the local council’s interest, because it is in the community interest, that they facilitate potential social enterprises, in terms of having the governance and sound plans around the services they will provide and the operational sustainability.
