The Chancellor of the Exchequer, aka ‘Spreadsheet Phil’, spent 74 minutes revealing his 2018 Budget, so in case you don’t want to watch a full replay, here are our 11 key announcements from 11 Downing St for social entrepreneurs.
The first six announcements here are of general interest to many social entrepreneurs, depending on the size and registered status of your venture:
There were also some important announcements for social entrepreneurs working in particular fields. For example, for social entrepreneurs:
All of the above comes with a caveat: things may change again as soon as this spring. A Brexit Budget in early 2019 will be considered if no deal is reached with the EU, although the Chancellor didn’t suggest that any of the announcements summarised would be reversed. Of greater significance, perhaps, will be the Comprehensive Spending Review, expected within the next 12 months, so keep on guard for any Halloween horrors until then. Rest-assured, the Policy team at UnLtd will keep you alerted and up-to-date.
I have been working for UnLtd since November 2016. As a Policy Officer I am working with the government and other decision makers to create a more enabling environment for social entrepreneurs to start up and thrive. Previously I gained experience in charity and social entrepreneurship consulting in Hungary. I have a BA in International Relations and a MSc in Management and have completed the Charityworks graduate scheme while working at London's Air Ambulance.
We host a series of events throughout the UK each year. From classes and conferences, seminars and workshops to networking events and training sessions.
