Field of Dreams Social Enterprise, Bishopstown, Cork

A ‘social enterprise’ differs from a ‘private enterprise’ in that it is established to meet a social challenge or need and generally, will reinvest profits back into expanding its socially or environmentally orientated support and services.

During the 2016-2017 period, SECAD Partnership supported twelve social enterprises to access funding to grow and expand.

Programmes supporting social enterprises vary depending on demand and time of year.

Eligibility criteria will apply to participants.
