Social enterprise

Art4Space is a certified social enterprise with the Social Enterprise Mark.

This means that Art4Space has proved it is genuine against independently-assessed criteria for social enterprise.
The Mark provides assurance that profits/surpluses are used to improve the lives of
people using the arts for social cohesion, acting as a guarantee that Art4Space profits are used to help people and planet, rather than pay dividends to shareholders.

We are accredited as a genuine social enterprise – the Social Enterprise Mark is an independent guarantee that we put the interests of people & planet above shareholder gain. We have been externally assessed against sector-agreed criteria and have proved our commitment to using profits and income to create benefits for society and the environment.

We are part of a diverse international network of accredited social enterprises, which have been assessed as meeting a robust and credible standard for social enterprise, as upheld by an independent Certification Panel. Social enterprises are trading businesses that reinvest income and profits to address social and environmental issues, above that of shareholder profit motivations. Through social enterprise, businesses like ours can operate with a positive impact on the world we live in.
