The aim of the census is to ensure that the work of social enterprises across the country is better understood and better supported.
The findings from the earlier 2015 Social Enterprise Census have already been widely used and made a huge difference. For example, they have been used to lobby on important issues for the sector, informed the Scottish Parliament's first debate on social enterprise, and informed Scotland's bold new strategy to support social enterprises.
The project is being carried out on behalf of the Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Scottish Enterprise, Big Lottery Fund, and others.
