Calling all Social Enterprises

Buy Social for a Better World is a week-long campaign designed to champion Social Enterprises and recognise all the excellent work they do throughout the year and will run from Monday 7th – Saturday 12th October 2019. Ards and North Down Borough Council would like to recognise and raise awareness of all the Social Enterprises within the Borough and the positive impact they have on our local community. We are promoting local Social Enterprises so as to encourage people to #BuySocial.

If you are a social enterprise then Ards and North Down Borough Council would like to hear from you. Contact Tory by telephone: 0300 013 3333 Ext 40959.
