Political will

“We already know of the work of social enterprises, charities, community and voluntary organisations in partnering with the public sector to provide services

They do exceptional work to a very high standard and frequently cost far less than similar but less effective services provided by the public sector. They are a growing part of our economy and are dealing with social issues in ways in which government simply is not able to.“It is my firm belief that it is time we examined how we could make even greater and better use of this sector in supporting us in government to achieve the outcomes we have agreed are necessary for Northern Ireland.

Minister for Finance Simon Hamilton
