THE Scottish Social Enterprise Coalition, the membership body for social enterprises in Scotland, has rebranded to Social Enterprise Scotland.
The body’s members voted in favour of the new name and logo this week before the annual Scottish Parliament reception to celebrate the sector.
The organisation said the change is intended to bring a new sense of clarity and purpose in fulfilling the mission of the umbrella body, as the voice for all social enterprises.
The rebranding also aims to bring a new focus for policy makers, stakeholders, the public and media.
Laurie Russell (below), chair of Social Enterprise Scotland, said: “We have a new name as Social Enterprise Scotland. We also have a new brand and logo, but more importantly social enterprises in Scotland have a new energy, commitment and focus.
“Our innovative social enterprises are delivering for the customers and communities we work with and can take a central role in the reform of public services.”
