Will You Join Us in a New Social Enterprise?
Eco-Hamlets UK was formed as a volunteer run community group in 2009, to bring people together and help them to create Eco-Hamlets across the UK. It excited a lot of interest, but progress has been slow due to a lack of resources. We are now setting up a Social Enterprise to take on the work, to expand on it, and to employ people to run it successfully. The Social Enterprise is intended to exist to do good, and not for the purpose of making money. However being financially viable, resilient and sustainable is a necessity, so making profits to invest in doing good, and strong financial management, is vital. Non financial yields, that make life better for ordinary people are, however the reason for its existence. It is hoped that being properly financed, with the potential to work on a much larger scale, will allow the organisation to bring real social benefits to a wide cross-section of people, rather than the limited scope of the original voluntary group.
