  1. Social Enterprise and Town Centre Regeneration A Social Enterprise Perspective Craig Sanderson Scottish Social Enterprise Coalition and Link Group Ltd. 26th October 2010

  2. Wider Role – What is it? The Scottish Government has encouraged Registered Social Landlords to think broadly about how they can help regenerate their local communities. This ‘Wider Role’ relates to: “… activity that goes beyond the provision, improvement and management of housing with the aim of improving the economic, social and environmental circumstances of the communities within which the RSL operates.”

  3. Wider Role – A Brief History Wider Role funding programme launched in 2000 – £35m in 700+ projects levering in £100m more 2/3 of RSLs involved Frozen at £12m till 2011

  4. Range of Wider Activities

  5. Social Enterprises – What Are They? • “Businesses with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders or owners” (DTI 2002) Compare and contrast (with other models)

  6. Role • Enterprising • Partner not a Contractor • Part of the supply chain • Community capacity building/development • Community sustainability e.g. community benefits clause • Both “intermediary” and direct service provider • Adding value – Social Return • Environmentally friendly • Healthier communities

Examples • Galeri Caernarfon – renovation, culture centre, cinema, etc. • Cordale Housing Association – shop, postoffice, health centre/flatlets • Upkeep – social firm (Shettleston HA) maintenance services • The Briggait – Wasps Artists.
