  • At first glance it would appear that the explosion in interest in social enterprise has been matched by phenomenal growth of their organisational form. The first national survey conducted for the Small Business Service in 2004 identified 15,000 social enterprises. A year later, the annual small business service survey identified 55,000 social enterprises. In 2009 data from the National Survey of Third Sector Organisations suggests that 48% of third sector organisations (c82,000 organisations) self identify as social enterprises according to the government definition (Lyon et al. 2010). From these surveys it would appear that the number of social enterprises in the UK has been growing rapidly. However closer analysis reveals that the different surveys have used different sampling frames and methodologies. In part this reflects that despite a decade of government investment into social enterprise infrastructure and research, there is still no clear understanding as to what a social enterprise is or how many there are in the UK (Lyon et al. 2010).2004: 15,000 social enterprises (IFF, 2005)2005: 55,000 social enterprises (ASBS, 2005)2009: 62,000 social enterprises (ASBS, 2005-2008)2009: c. 80,000 social enterprises - 48% of third sector organisations self identify as social enterprises2010: 232,000 social enterprises (Delta, 2010)Problem solved? Fast forward to the Big Society?
