The latest from the world of social enterprise accreditation

What makes the Social Enterprise Mark unique, further international expansion, encouraging consumers to go 'Beyond the Badge' & latest news and events from the sector

September 2017

Wow - summer went by in a flash! We hope you all enjoyed a break over the summer holidays and return to work fully recharged!

Last month, we enjoyed our annual team away day, where we spent the morning at
Column Bakehouse, the only social enterprise bakery in Plymouth, managed by Mark holder Real Ideas Trading.

We learnt some new skills and all left with a bag full of our homemade baked goodies! Thanks to Head Baker Jon for a thoroughly enjoyable course.

First Social Enterprise Mark in South Africa

 

We are delighted to welcome Symphonia for South Africa (SSA) as the 1st organisation in Africa to achieve the Social Enterprise Mark. They join a growing network of international Mark holders.

SSA has a bold and audacious vision: Quality education for all children in South Africa by 2025. Through the flagship project, Partners for Possibility (PfP), they promote and facilitate leadership development opportunities for business leaders, school principals and their school management teams.

What makes the Social Enterprise Mark unique?

 

There is often some confusion between the different labels and badges available to social sector organisations.

The Social Enterprise Mark is a unique accreditation, in that it provides an independent, externally assessed guarantee that a business is operating primarily in the interests of creating benefits for people and planet.

We have produced a useful comparison table to outline the key differences between the Social Enterprise Mark and other badges and labels.

Go 'Beyond the Badge'



With research showing that public trust in business is declining, we have teamed up with other independent Standard Bodies that set and assess genuine and transparent standards, which help consumers cut through the barrage of branding and use their purchasing power for good. 

By supporting the #GoBeyondTheBadge campaign, you can stand up for:
  • a growing movement of businesses serious about making change for good and proud to prove it 
  • the values and standards that are managed by an independent standards body with real expertise in their sector
How you can get involved:

Leading by example - social impact statements

 

Did you know that we meet the Social Enterprise Mark criteria as an accredited social enterprise?

All applicants and renewing Mark holders are required to provide social impact statements, which illustrate how they are striving to create a positive impact on people and planet. These statements are published online in the directory of accredited social enterprises.

We have recently published our own social impact statements, which demonstrate how we are striving to make a difference and stand up to scrutiny of purpose as a social enterprise.

Collaboration agreement with CIC Regulator

 

We have recently renewed the Memorandum of Understanding with The Regulator of Community Interest Companies, symbolising an ongoing mutual commitment to co-operation & collaboration. 

The agreement enables both parties to exchange information and provide feedback on relevant issues relating to CICs. 

There are now over 13,500 CICs in the UK. These businesses automatically meet most of the criteria covered by the Social Enterprise Mark and over ¼ of our network of accredited social enterprises are registered as CICs.

Providing credible standards for social enterprise 


In a guest blog for the Office of the Regulator of Community Interest Companies, Lucy considers the developing role of Social Enterprise Mark CIC in upholding the standard for social enterprise, both in the UK and internationally.

She looks at how the Community Interest Company (CIC) model provides a perfect fit for social enterprise, and also explains how we are broadening our horizons as an established social enterprise accreditation authority.
