Welcoming the initiative today, Chris MM Gordon, CEO of the Irish Social Enterprise Network said:
Today we welcome a milestone in the history of Social Enterprise in Ireland. Upon signing the Toledo Declaration of Social Enterprise, the Government of Ireland are stating their clear support to Social Enterprises and their role in the most recent COVID-19 pandemic.
We want to congratulate Minister Humphreys and her team in the Department of Rural and Community Enterprise on this important day. This effort firmly places Ireland at the top levels of engagement on Social Enterprise, and commits the Government of Ireland to lasting and meaningful support for the Irish Social Enterprise landscape.
