The development of social enterprises (SEs) requires the support from various sectors of the community. The simplest and most direct way to support SEs is through everyday consumption of their products and services so as to help them sustain operations with profit gains and achieve the social objectives they pursue, e.g. providing the services or products needed by the community, creating employment and training opportunities for the socially disadvantaged, etc. Do show your care by patronising SEs and make your spending more meaningful.

SEs selling and providing a wide variety of products and services are found in every district. The following tools can help you search for SEs and their products and services that meet your needs.
