The Social Enterprise

The Southville Community Development Association (SCDA) is proud to be one of the first organisations to be accredited with the Social Enterprise Mark - a label which tells customers that a product or service is creating a social and environmental as well as financial benefit.

In February 2010 Peter Holbrook, CEO of the Social Enterprise Coalition, visited the Southville Centre and presented us with the Mark.

The Mark offers social enterprises a simple way to inform customers about the wider social or environmental impacts they provide and it gives social enterprises a competitive edge in these economically challenging times.

For customers it offers an instantly recognisable label to identify social enterprise; reminding them that by supporting a social enterprise they are helping to create benefits for people and the planet.

We want this to be how all trade is done and are dedicated to promoting this ethos in our local community. Read about our preferred supplier policy.
