Social Enterprise Data Collection Initiative

A Baseline social enterprise research project is being delivered on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community Development by Amárach Research, in partnership with Social Enterprise Republic of Ireland (SERI) and the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN).

This exercise will identify key data such as the total number of social enterprises in Ireland, their regional spread, the primary sectors they are active in, their staffing levels and traded income.

This will ensure the Department is in a much better position to support the sector and develop social enterprise policy, with a robust evidence base.

The data provided in this survey will be used only for research purposes and will not be used in relation to any funding applications. No information will be published that could identify your organisation.

The findings of this project will give greater insight into the sector, underpinning policy development and assisting in the provision of supports that may be available to the sector in the future.

The project will be completed by the end of the year and the results published on

This survey will remain open until end of day on Friday 14th October.
