Global Social Enterprise Programme

The British Council’s Global Social Enterprise programme draws on the UK’s expertise to support the development of social enterprise and social investment in the UK and other countries and share best practice and create opportunities between them. 

Our programme is delivered with partners who share our determination to support positive social change, sustainable development and inclusive growth. We organise high profile policy dialogues, official study visits and capacity building initiatives which promote social enterprise and social investment, corporate social responsibility and sustainable economic development. 

Through such initiatives, we provide aspiring and practising social entrepreneurs as well as civil society organisations, community leaders and university students with skills training, mentoring and access to UK expertise. 

The Global Social Enterprise Programme showcases UK best practice and innovation and builds connections across borders between social entrepreneurs, intermediary organisations and social investors. This fosters trust and creates opportunities between the UK and other countries while supporting a more sustainable, inclusive and prosperous future for all.
