The aim of the Social Enterprise Hub is to tackle vacancy and community eyesores and the lack of local employment by encouraging social enterprise business start-up within local communities.

 

The project will target clusters of street level units within communities that are currently underused. A key action of the draft Economic Strategy for Northern Ireland is to "Invest in Social Enterprise growth to increase sustainability in the voluntary and community sector."

 

A SEH Pilot Project will test the potential for disadvantaged areas to benefit from future economic growth and provide learning for Government and other neighbourhoods beyond those of the pilot projects.
