Unlimited Potential is a democratically-controlled social enterprise, based in Salford, which provides innovative services for happiness and health.
It supports people to live happier and healthier lives by helping them to take control and to develop their skills and abilities to fulfil their potential.
It is rated on the national SE100 Index as the second fastest growing social enterprise in health and social care in the UK.
Chris Dabbs, Chief Executive of Unlimited Potential, said “We are very proud to have been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark. Unlimited Potential strives not only to provide effective services that help people to improve their own lives, but also to be a healthy and happy enterprise that has the best possible impact for people and for a sustainable world.
“We reinvest all of our profits for our social mission. Social enterprise is a better way of doing business, and the Social Enterprise Mark enables us to show people that we are truly motivated for society and the environment.”
Social enterprise is a different way to do business and is becoming more important to customers, especially following mistrust in privately-run banks and businesses.
Recent research revealed that consumers are crying out for the Social Enterprise Mark: 7 out of 10 people (in a survey conducted by ICM Research*) said they would prefer to buy from firms who put their profits back into the community rather than into the pockets of shareholders and that they would rather buy from an organisation that makes decisions based on concern for society and the environment.
