SSE Ireland and CEO Lynda Stopford in The Sunday Times

SSE Ireland and our CEO Lynda Stopford featured in this week's Sunday Times in an article highlighting the growth of social enterprise in Ireland. "Social Enterprises don't typically get the same access to support as so-called regular businesses. But social enterprises are businesses too, they employ people, they make an economic impact as well as a social one." If anything social entrepreneurs may need more help building sustainable businesses than regular entrepreneurs.
