Cumbrian town leads on social enterprise

The remote Cumbrian town of Alston Moor has beaten stiff competition to become the UK’s first “Social Enterprise Town”, in recognition of the way the Council develops and protects its local economy.  The  town works with nearly 20 social enterprises, supporting over 50 jobs. Shadow Civil Society spokesperson Gareth Thomas said the town “could be the trailblazer”. The award, from Social Enterprise UK, which represents many of Britain’s social enterprises, was sponsored by The Independent on Sunday.
