How we can help
Effective policy can be a huge accelerator of social enterprise. At SEWF we are committed to sharing information and best practice, and working with partners and sector leads to support policymakers to create effective strategy and policy that has genuine impact.
Around the world, hundreds of experts continue to add to our knowledge of social enterprise policy. At SEWF we are building an extensive library of resources, which can be accessed by the wider social enterprise community.
Our experts carry out research to understand the scope and scale of evolving social enterprise ecosystems. We partner on research grants and other proposals that align with our mission and objectives. Get in touch to contribute or find out more about partnering with us.
Where a new policy is needed for a city, province or country, SEWF’s experts are available on a consultancy basis. Bringing years of experience in both writing policy and understanding what makes it effective, we can help organisations navigate common challenges and avoid pitfalls.
SEWF advocates for public bodies to work with social enterprise agencies to co-produce policies in order to achieve the best results. We can facilitate this co-production, working with policymakers and agencies to design and develop strategies to support social enterprise.
Since 2009 we have held policy focused events alongside our flagship forums. Following the success of our online Policy Forum in 2020, we plan to use the digital format to host our Policy Forum each year to increase the event’s reach and impact.
