We’ve just found out that we have been included in the NatWest SE100 Index of the UK’s top 100 social enterprises for 2023. The NatWest SE100 Index was created by social enterprise magazine Pioneers Post in partnership with NatWest Social & Community Capital, the bank’s independent social investment charity.
The top 100 list includes businesses and trading charities from across the UK delivering a diverse range of goods and services, from jobs and training to books, bread, period products, cycling and clean energy.
The list was selected according to a number of different criteria to reflect both business and impact issues – including financial performance, how thoroughly they measured and managed their impact, and their commitment to both climate issues and to taking positive action on equality and diversity.
To enter the SE100 Index, Eastside People were asked to complete a detailed SE100 Social Business Survey, which was carried out online between March and May 2023.
People are our first priority and for two decades we have sought out highly skilled individuals who are passionate about using their skills and knowledge to bring about social change. We invest in our people supporting them to be the best informed, to develop their practice, and to share know-how and resources.
Together we operate as a community of professionals, enabling clients to draw on the right people at the right time from our community, and amplifying the impact of support with tools, resources and collective learning from over 2200 projects which we have now delivered.
We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our clients, our team of consultants and the Eastside People central team for helping to make this happen.
