Social Saturday - 14th October 25th September 2017

Social Saturday is a nationwide day of events and activities to celebrate the nation’s booming social enterprise sector. 

Social enterprises are businesses that trade to meet a social or environmental mission. There are nearly 80,000 social enterprises in the UK, employing over a million people and contributing more than £24 billion to the economy.

Social Saturday is led by Social Enterprise UK, and supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the Co-op.

“We’re delighted to be supporting Social Saturday – it’s a great way to let people know there’s a different way of doing business that meet the needs and expectations of consumers today.”

Steve Murrells, Co-op Group CEO

The campaign encourages consumers, businesses and public bodies to find out more about social enterprises and to buy from them.

Together social enterprises are changing people’s lives in a positive way and transforming local communities. GALE has operated as a social enterprise for more than 15 years.  It is distinct from both the private and public sector.  It offers a powerful ‘other’ way of doing business and at GALE we believe it is the preferred means of developing our local economy and delivering local services.

We are proud to be a part of Social Saturday and encourage you all to come along to the GALE Centre to find out more about the work we do.
