Social Saturday 2018

Socv sat 18

Social Saturday 2018 will be taking place on 13 October - make sure to save the date!

Now entering its fifth year, Social Saturday is the biggest country wide initiative dedicated to celebrating and raising awareness of UK social enterprises - businesses which trade to meet a social or environmental purpose.


Since it was launched in 2014 Social Saturday has gone  from strength to strength reaching millions of people through local events, national and regional media coverage and through online platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. The campaign is a chance to shine a spotlight on social enterprises and show the difference they are making in communities across the country. 

 

SEUK have pulled together lots of useful information and resources to help you plan your event:

 

  • Tailored Info packs for social enterprises in different sectors from retail to public services, to make is easier for you to get involved with the campaign. These include ideas for events, suggested social media and web content and other resources, and can be accessed here
  • For your own websites and social media channels you can access and download sample content here

 

This includes a photo frame that can be used.  Please send any photos to SEEE and we will share widely.

 

This year the Social Saturday map will feature both Social Saturday events as well as SEUK members who are open to the public during that week (from Monday 8th to Saturday 13th October).
