Social enterprises are businesses that sell goods and services in order to generate community benefit. Buying from a social enterprise means you are directly supporting the social purpose of that organisation. All social enterprises on Good Spender have been accredited by Social Traders including verification that they deliver the social benefit communicated on the website.
