​​​​​​​Angus Social Enterprise Strategy 2019-2026

Introduction

These are unprecedented times, where public service reform, resource shift and doing things differently are at the heart of local and national strategic planning. The scale and scope of such change offers new opportunities for growing social enterprise and entrepreneurship. Over the last few years Angus has seen significant change in regards to how services are delivered locally and across the county.

As the pace of change continues, opportunities exist to further develop social enterprises in a range of services. Locally in towns and burghs across Angus there are many examples where local people, supported by community planning partners, have developed new enterprise through asset transfers or trading in different ways as opposed to dependency on grant aid.

This strategy demonstrates the commitment of Angus Community Planning Partners in supporting further development, growth and opportunity for social enterprise in Angus.
