    Our voice of Business this month is:
    Peter Holbrook CBE, Chief Executive, Social Enterprise UK

    There are 70,000 social enterprises in the UK, contributing £24 billion to the economy and employing nearly a million people. In an age of public sector austerity and significant social and environmental problems, social enterprises - businesses which reinvest their profits and are driven by social or environmental mission - have a substantial contribution to make to communities and local economies.
