The government is over-counting social enterprises

Excerpt from Lucy’s latest blog (on Third Sector mag):
“My suspicion is that we should probably cut the numbers in half given (a) the original DTI mapping figure of 15,000 in 2005, (b) the growth of the sector and (c) the experiences we have had in registrations to the Mark. But I doubt we will ever really know. What we should be concentrating on is measuring the quality, impact and sustainability of social enterprises that we do know about and help new ones get the best possible start.”
