We are proud to announce that we have retained our social enterprise mark again this year. We are one of only four community transport schemes to have this mark, the other 3 being very large schemes in the south of England. The Social Enterprise Mark is only awarded to credible social enterprises that can prove they operate with the central aim of using income and profits to maximise positive social and/or environmental impact, taking precedent over a requirement to maximise personal profit for owners and shareholders.
Not only have we be awarded this Mark for another year, we have been selected to be one of the social enterprises that demonstrate to other applicants, effective examples of social impact statements and supporting evidence. Apparently we are an interesting example! Making a Mark
We have also been selected as the feature Mark holder for the next newsletter, February 2016 which can be found Here
I have also attached a copy of our Impact Declaration for you to have a look at.
The following is an email received from Sophie Butland, Marketing and communications officer at Social Enterprise Mark.
I thought you may like to know that we are featuring Llanwrtyd Wells Community Transport in the ‘Making a Mark’/social impact section of the website, as an interesting example of measuring and demonstrating impact/value:
You may have noticed in our recent newsletters that we are featuring examples chosen by my colleague Richard Cobbett. Richard has decided to feature your example for the next newsletter, this is due to be published within the next week.
