The overall objective of Social Enterprise Limerick is to provide a local platform for Social Enterprises to meet, network, share their experiences and learn from each other. The network encourages collaboration and the sharing of resources to help members to advance their Community, Social and/or Environmental goals. The network also promotes the overall concept of Social Enterprise in Limerick City.
A Social Enterprise is an enterprise whose objective is to achieve a social, societal or environmental impact, rather than maximising profit for its owners or shareholders. It pursues its objectives by trading on an ongoing basis through the provision of goods and/or services, and by reinvesting surpluses into achieving social objectives. It is governed in a fully accountable and transparent manner and is independent of the public sector. If dissolved, it should transfer its assets to another organisation with a similar mission. (National Social Enterprise Policy for Ireland 2019-2022)
