Research into challenges on legal form for social enterprises in Ireland

Posted on 30 Oct 2020

Rethink Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development are undertaking a research to assess the impact of different legal forms utilised by social enterprises and to discern whether or not a distinct legal form would be of value or necessary to social enterprises in Ireland. This is one of the commitments made in the National Social Enterprise Policy for Ireland 2019-2022.

Tanya Lalor and Gerard Doyle have been engaged to undertake a consultation process with social enterprises and key stakeholders as part of this research. This consultation process includes a survey of a sample of social enterprises in Ireland.

If you are a social enterprise, have been trading for at least two years, and are interested in being included in a database from which a sample of social enterprises will be selected, please register using the link below by Friday 6 November.

Note: the database will be used solely and exclusively for the purposes of this survey and will be deleted upon the completion of the research.
