To remove barriers to Social Enterprise

Hui E! Proposal 11

To develop a policy and legislative framework that actively supports, and removes barriers to social enterprise, along the lines of the report Social Enterprise and Social Finance: A Path to Growth - the report to the Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector from the Strategic Group on Social Enterprise and Social Finance.

This proposal addresses the OGP Values of: Improving public accountability and technology and innovation for openness and accountability.

Why the contribution is important

Social enterprise has been around for a long time, where community organisations engage in trade of some sort so as to raise funds to support their programmes - think Girl Guide Biscuits  and Salvation Army Op-Shops. But there are changes needed to the legislative framework so as to enable new and innovative ideas.

Social enterprise enable community organisations and charities to reduce their dependence on government funding to be able to provide services.
