Social enterprise: an appropriate model for a child and youth care organisation?

Graham Bell, Lesley Fuller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article charts the journey of Kibble, from one of Scotland's oldest child and youth care charities, to an award-winning social enterprise. It explores the definition and history of social enterprise and how Kibble created a Victorian blended income-stream long before the term 'social enterprise' had been coined. The authors discuss the daily challenges and opportunities of adopting a social enterprise model in a child and youth care organisation. Finally they outline the need to blend purpose with profit and explore the impact on stakeholders, beneficiaries, staff and ultimately on wider society.
