Thank you for taking part in the West of England Social Enterprise census. This data will help us build the evidence for social enterprise in our area, and measure the growth of the sector. It's an update on the previous survey we did in 2012  delivered by Social Enterprise Works.

This survey is part of the Social Enterprise City status awarded to Bristol - which we want to extend to the 'West of England' region. Support for this survey, and of the Social Enterprise Places programme, led by Social Enterprise UK and supported by Santander.

The answers you give will be kept confidential, and any identifying details will not be shared.

All organisations that complete this census will be invited to be listed in a new UK wide Buy Social Directory, led by Social Enterprise UK which will publicize ways local businesses and consumers can buy from social enterprises.

You'll also be invited to join the regional project 'Buy Local Buy Social' - which creates new opportunities for the social economy through publicly funded contracts.

Instructions on how to be included in this is at the end of the survey.
