Social enterprises have been the backbone to Irish society for decades but never more so as during the COVID-19 pandemic. Supporting social enterprises to ensure that those furthest from the labour market are included and given an opportunity to flourish benefits all of society. Implementing simple and innovative ways to grow the Third Sector, to have greater social impact makes sense.
