Trading with the good of the community at its heart.
Social Echo is a non-profit organisation based in the United Kingdom on a mission to dismantle poverty and lack of opportunity by harnessing the potential of social trading to build stronger communities.
We believe that communities can become more cohesive, caring, and capable in the face of change by developing their own ecosystem for social trading: trading with the good of the community at its heart. We bring together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support local people in need, build the infrastructure necessary to sustain local wellness and help the local economy thrive. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and climate crisis, the world needs this more than ever.
How we do it
We bring organisations together in physical and virtual spaces to house great people and ideas, unleashing the untapped potential of communities.
Growing Social Business
We help grow social businesses by offering support services and networking.
Reducing Gaps & Overlaps
We operate in a fourth sector environment where the private, public and voluntary sectors meet, helping organisations to reduce duplication and identify opportunities where local wellness needs are unmet.
We help social businesses develop franchising opportunities, allowing them to scale and replicate, amplifying social impact and creating opportunities in other places.
Social Echo has built partnerships that have brought together private, public and voluntary sector organisations to deliver measurable social impact. Our team has helped build and develop innovative social businesses and charitable organisations, created the UKs most ambitious free community festival and launched the UKs first Covid-19 support network in 2020.
Yaxley Festival is more than an event, it’s a core component of a community development programme that continues to deliver REAL SOCIAL IMPACT.
The Hobby Hub project promotes hobbies and their benefits for mental and physical wellbeing in a space to create, collaborate and share.
