A Baseline social enterprise research project is being delivered on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community Development by Amárach Research, in partnership with Social Enterprise Republic of Ireland (SERI) and the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN).

The data provided in this survey will be used only for research purposes and will not be used in relation to any funding applications. No information will be published that could identify your organisation.

The project will be completed by the end of the year and the results published on
