Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is a world in which the economy and essential services are run by organisations that put people and planet first. Such a world is possible! But it needs a critical mass of people and sustainable organisations that prioritise the needs of everyone, especially those who are currently marginalised or left behind.

  • Through CAN³, our mission is to create and nurture a community of truly social enterprises that are sustainable, committed to maximising social impact, and work with each other and others to help make the world a better place.

Through CAN³ support, you will:

We know what it's like to sustainably grow a medium-sized social enterprise- we've successfully done it ourselves!

 We have increased our turnover to £4.5M in 2016/17, moved from grant dependency to 99% trading income, raising over £18M in commercial finance and manage over £40M in assets.

 We are also one of the leading UK experts in helping social enterprises build their capabilities in impact-led strategy, business growth and investment readiness.

I like the sound of this, but how does the programme actually work?
