Welcome to #BuySocialScotland, a national initiative to encourage Scottish consumers to purchase products and services from social enterprises and make a difference with their purchasing power this festive season and beyond.
With over 6000 social enterprise organisations in Scotland, we have a great opportunity to support local businesses that are also having a wider positive impact on key issues facing our society and communities. By shopping locally and ethically, we can all play a positive role in making Scotland a better and fairer place.
Interested in supporting the campaign? We'd love your help in sharing the word about the great ethical gifts available from social enterprises all across Scotland. Visit our online campaign pack here to learn more about how you can help, and access a range of assets including the campaign video, social images, social copy drafts, and a template to contact local press and media journalists.
Social enterprises are led by passionate people whose core mission is to make Scotland a better place for everyone. When you purchase from a social enterprise, each pound you spend contributes to make Scotland better. This is because social enterprises are businesses for good who reinvest their profits to address the most pressing issues we face, from autism to care, art and culture, employability, homelessness, mental health, or youth services.
Over the next few months, we’ll add more organisations, stories from social enterprise founders and case studies of impact across a range of key issue. Bookmark this website and our blog to stay in the loop, you can also sign up to our newsletter in the footer. In 2021, we’ll scale this website and campaign to showcase more service based organisations.
This campaign is led by Social Enterprise Scotland, with support from the Scottish Government, and a range of collaborative partners. We hope you’ll find this website helpful and inspiring and find great options for gifts that give back and make a difference in our local communities.
