Online Consultation: Developing an Irish Social Enterprise Policy

In September 2017, Michael Ring TD, Minister for Rural and Community Development announced the development of a National Policy on Social Enterprise.
To this end, a research partnership between Department of Rural and Community Development and the Social Finance Foundation has been announced to produce research outputs which will support the development of an Irish social enterprise policy and implementation roadmap in early 2018.
An online consultation now seeks views that will inform this, Ireland’s first major policy on social enterprise. The consultation is being undertaken by the Department of Rural and Community Development, in co-operation with the Social Finance Foundation.
