The ‘Social Enterprise and Homelessness Report’, commissioned by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch) and authored by Mark Richardson (Clore Social Fellow), explores the potential of social enterprises to support adults with multiple needs into employment. The report provides insight into a growing sector, analysing best practices as well as practical concerns, to conclude with concrete recommendations for practitioners and decision-makers on how to make these efforts more effective and sustainable.
The Clore Social Leadership Programme, is an initiative aiming at identifying, connecting and developing emerging talent in the third sector. The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has been involved in the Programme from its establishment, providing office space to the Programme’s management team for the first two years and sponsoring specialist Gulbenkian Fellows with a particular interest in one of our main areas of work. In 2011, we supported Mark Richardson in the area of multiple needs and exclusions, one of the core focuses of our Fulfilling Potential aim.
