From Rethink Ireland: https://rethinkireland.ie/support-social-this-christmas/
Social enterprises offer unique gifts, experiences, and services with much more than monetary value. Choosing to support a social enterprise creates a ripple effect, transforming the lives of individuals and communities across Ireland.
Rethink Ireland are delighted to support social enterprises across Ireland through the Social Enterprise Start-up Fund and the Social Enterprise Development Fund, which is in partnership with Local Authorities Ireland and funded by IPB Insurance and the Department of Rural and Community Development via the Dormant Accounts Fund.
At Rethink Ireland we believe that social enterprises are at the heart of addressing Ireland’s greatest social challenges and strengthening communities. We believe they are playing a vital role as we recover from the pandemic.
Social enterprises employ people who would typically be considered far from the labour market, produce ethical and sustainable products and/or provide vital local services at more affordable rates than the private sector. They can and will contribute to a just economic, social and sustainable recovery.
