The NatWest SE100 Index, announced yesterday (14 May) is the annual list of the UK’s leading 100 social enterprises, compiled by Pioneers Post in partnership with NatWest Social and Community Capital.

The Women’s Organisation is the UK’s largest female enterprise agency providing a range of services focused on supporting women to start and develop small and medium-sized enterprises.

With over 470,000 social enterprises operating across the country, this places the Liverpool-based organisation within the top 1% of these.

The organisation says that its vision for the sector is that it will continue to develop innovative and effective collaboration and lead the way in redesigning an economy which puts business for good first.

Maggie O’Carroll, CEO of The Women’s Organisation, together with Deputy CEO Helen Millne, says: “We are incredibly proud to be named as one of the UK’s top 100 social enterprises. With over 470,000 social enterprises doing vital work across the country to deliver a positive impact for the future of individuals and our communities, it is a real privilege to be counted in the top 1% of these.

“Core indicators of performance used in the NatWest SE100 Index include impact management, leadership, resilience and storytelling. These principles are more important than ever and offer firm assurance within the current crisis that the social sector is equipped with the speed of adaptation and resilience to face these challenges and continue, as always, to support those in need.

“More importantly, we are proud to be part of a movement which continues to tackle inequalities and deliver real social impact. Our vision for the sector is that we will continue to develop innovative and effective collaboration and lead the way in redesigning an economy which puts business for good first.”
