Social Economy Age Programme Evaluation

  • Description

Philanthropists and Foundations have paid increasing attention to impact investment and how grant strategies leave a more lasting legacy from the projects and programmes they support. Similarly, the social economy has being growing as an alternative to the privatisation of social care and the rundown of welfare across a range of western states and societies. Social economics is framed as an arena where social objectives are pursued through everyday businesses and profitable activities but where a strong commitment to redistribution, democratic control and community ownership offers a platform for more independent forms of advocacy and social change.
