Posted: 30 April 2021


The extracts from each party manifesto in this document focus on issues of relevance to social enterprises, including funding and support, the wellbeing economy, fair work, community wealth building, community ownership, land reform and pledges regarding the variety of social enterprise business models. The list is not exhaustive and only includes the main, existing parties in The Scottish Parliament. We recommend reading the key points of each manifesto that can be found using the web links in the document and online.

Help us encourage candidates to sign the Social Economy Pledge and commit to support Scotland’s charities, social enterprises and community groups. Designed with our partners, the Pledge recognises the key role these organisations play in building a new, inclusive economy, regenerating our communities, and supporting excluded and vulnerable people.
