  • Haven is a social enterprise, so what exactly is a social enterprise?

    The Government defines social enterprises as “businesses with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.”

    As with all businesses, they compete to deliver goods and services. The difference is that social and environmental purposes are at the very heart of what they do, and the profits they make are reinvested towards achieving those purposes.

    Whatever they do, they do it differently from typical business, because they are driven by a social and environmental mission, and they are focused on the community they serve.

    Social enterprises are businesses that trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment.

    They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits.
