LAUNCH OF QUESTIONNAIRE TO
GATHER BASELINE DATA ABOUT
SOCIAL ENTERPRISE IN IRELAND
As you will have read in August’s SE-News, a baseline social enterprise research
project is being delivered on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community
Development by Amárach Research, in partnership with Social Enterprise Republic
of Ireland (SERI) and the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN).
An online questionnaire is launching today. All social enterprises are encouraged
to complete the questionnaire which will be distributed by network and support
organisations. If you have not received your link yet, then you can access the
questionnaire using the link below:

This is the first national opportunity for social enterprises to provide evidence from
the sector that will better inform all stakeholders. This exercise will identify key
data such as the total number of social enterprises in Ireland, their regional spread,
the primary sectors they are active in, their staffing levels and traded income.
This research will ensure the Department is in a much better position to support the
sector and develop social enterprise policy, with a strong and robust evidence base.
