What is Buy Social Scotland?

This gift directory is part of a national campaign that aims to make it easier to find great local and ethical gifts from social enterprises across Scotland.

Did you know that when you buy a gift, experience or voucher from a social enterprise, your purchase makes a big difference? This is because social enterprises reinvest most or all of their profits to help tackle key social and environmental issues in local communities.

Buy Social Scotland Presents with a Purpose

How do my gifts make a difference?

Social enterprises support local communities by helping to tackle key issues from autism to care, arts and culture, employability, homelessness, mental health, sports or supporting young people.

Using your pounds for purpose is a great and easy way to support the work of social enterprises and deliver positive impact to make Scotland a fairer, greener and better place for everyone. Help us share the word by using the #BuySocialScotland hashtag and encouraging your friends and families to find gifts that make a difference on this directory.
