"Social enterprises are truly unique in that we exist to fulfill a social or environmental purpose and all our profits are ploughed back into achieving that," says Alison Holland, founder of Brightwayz, a not-for-profit that promotes safe, active, sustainable travel in the UK.

That's why the UK's North Northants Social Enterprise Network (NNSE) is trying to help her and other like-minded social enterprises in the area "create a stronger, more positive, and thriving local social enterprise community," per a press release.

The NNSE launched its "Growth for Good" project last month, providing digital and marketing support to social enterprises in the area.

Among those represented at the event were: Teamwork Trust, Youth Works Northamptonshire, Accommodation Concern, Love Corby CIC, Corby Radio, The Core at Corby Cube, Wings and Radicles, CommMiniBus, Picture the Difference, Retail Crime Initiative, Brightwayz, Brand My Thingy, and Wicksteed Park.

"Many lack the budgets, expertise, or marketing resources to sing their own praises, so we want to help them do that for everyone's benefit," says NNSE's Social Enterprise Ambassadors.

"Quite simply, we are stronger together."
