We need your help. The Irish Social Enterprise Network has been asked to contribute to a high level expert panel to the OECD, EU Commission and others on the national responses to supporting social enterprise through COVID-19.This meeting will take place on Friday 18th September morning.

We would like your help in answering some of the following questions:

Country Examples:

– What can we learn from actions taken by national governments to support social enterprise in response to the
crisis? What worked and where are the gaps? [Specifically Ireland]
– How did countries succeed in introducing changes?
– How can IOs support national developments in the short, medium and long-term?

While we are requesting information from the Government on what they believe their response was, we would like to feedback as much information as we can on how we feel the government has supported the sector, good, bad or indifferent.

If you have anything to contribute please email: info@socent.ie Subject: Response to COVID-19
