The Government spends £141 billion a year purchasing goods and services.

Most decisions on who delivers these contracts are currently made on price, not on how they can create jobs, stimulate local economies, support local communities, or reduce environmental harm.

The Social Enterprise Mark and many social enterprises attended an event organised by Social Enterprise Coalition at the House of Commons on 18 November, Social Enterprise day.

This briefing was to support MP Chris White, and ask MP's to vote in support of the bill and passed critical debate in House of Commons the next day.

With more and more opportunities opening up every day for social enterprises to join up and work together to deliver public services, the proposed Social Enterprise bill could have important role to play in helping councils to embrace Social Enterprise model for public service delivery.

With a brand identity like Social Enterprise Mark available to Leisure Trusts social enterprise can help people to understand when their leisure provider is genuinely socially motivated by clearly displaying the Mark.

A growing list of over 300 companies have joined the Social Enterprise Mark movement and are being identified by this badge showing that they are joined up in working for identifiable social change and environmental sustainability.

The Mark is much more than a visual symbol, it demonstrates to customers that these organisations are committed to social and environmental objectives and are trading for people and planet.

This month saw the launch of You Tube as a medium to tell the stories of the hundreds of Social Enterprises who are now part of the movement.

Halo's CEO Jon Argent is on You Tube in support of the Mark: "The reason Halo went for the Social Enterprise Mark is so that we can use it as a vehicle to display what's good about us so people understand it better," he said.

On You Tube you can watch GLL's managing director Mark Sesnan's testimony too, as he puts positive support on film in this new Social Enterprise Mark You Tube channel. "We applied for the Social Enterprise Mark because we believe in Social Enterprise," he said. "Being part of the Social Enterprise family is core to our mission."
