About Us

Inclusive Economies.
Beyond Social Enterprise.
Community Wealth Building.
Grassroots Growth.

What makes communities thrive? It’s the people in them. It’s the work they do, week in week out, against the odds, making things work. It’s the small business they run; the shopkeeper on the corner who everyone knows, the barber and the coffee shop owner. It’s the bloke who runs a social enterprise helping kids stay out of trouble, and the arts collective putting an open air show on every Summer. It’s the young lad doing an apprenticeship on a building site, and the events company using their profits to put on street parties.

These are the things that make communities thrive.

At Inclusive Economy, we’re working to make sure people make the most of their abilities, that they are empowered to run small businesses, join together to run a community facility, work from the grassroots up to build a more inclusive community in the areas where they live.

It’s not about measuring every single thing you do to make an impact, it’s not about traditional social enterprise. It’s about working together to build solidarity, build inclusivity and help each other to turn our bright ideas into reality.
