    31. 31. ‘A Network for Change’
    32. 32. Mission The Irish Social Enterprise Network supports the aims of social enterprises that want to have a positive social impact. We share the value of having an open and collaborative approach to business, that is displayed throughout the social enterprise sector internationally
    33. 33. ‘Criteria to guide us’ Does your social enterprise have social and/or environmental objectives? Does your social enterprise combine income from a number of different sources and do you aspire to reduce your dependence on grants and increase your focus on contracts and commercial income? Does your social enterprise reinvest all surpluses in the pursuit of social and/or environmental objectives, and will it distribute its assets to like-minded organisations in the event of winding-up?
    34. 34. ‘Criteria to guide us’ In terms of its governance, is your social enterprise independent and free from state control? Is your social enterprise driven by ethical values, not just in its business objectives, but also in how it interacts with employees, suppliers, customers, other stakeholders and the environment? Does your social enterprise operate in the Republic of Ireland?
