How can cities support social enterprises – the Utrecht model


At the meeting of our working group on smart social inclusion in Utrecht on 22-23 September this year, the city presented its policies and practices used to support social enterprises. Participants also had the opportunity to visit two local social enterprises. 
We have published a case study giving an overview of the local context in Utrecht, local policies and procurement rules, and other support mechanisms in place in the city to support social enterprises. We also give two examples of partnerships.
