Social Enterprise Day 2017 - #WhoKnew

16 November is Social Enterprise Day a global day to raise awareness about the impact social enterprises are having around the world.

To celebrate the day we're running our digital #WhoKnew campaign to give social enterprises the chance to shout out about the good work they're doing and the difference they're making in their communities and beyond. The day is all about highlighting the diversity in the sector and an opportunity for all social enterprises to take part in a public facing campaign. So whether you're working in social care, health, facilities management, leisure, construction or are selling consumer goods this is for you!

How do I get involved?

Taking part in the campaign couldn't be easier. All you need to do is follow these steps:

1. Download a sign (Twitter size sign or larger size sign) and use it to tell the world something interesting about your social enterprise using #WhoKnew and #SocialEnterpriseDay. For example: 

        #WhoKnew buying this bag means a bag is given free to a child going into care  #SocialEnterpriseDay

        #WhoKnew this coffee/food is creating sustainable employment for people with Learning Disabilities #SocialEnterpriseDay

2. Write out your message and take a photo! This can include the people that you work with, your staff team or a picture of the product or service you provide

3. Once you’ve taken your photo share it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or whatever other platform you’re on at any point between Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 November . Make sure however that you’re definitely sharing posts on the 16th.

4. Once you’ve taken your picture, take another one! There’s no limit to the amount of posts you can share.
