We believe that locally-based social enterprises are distinctively suitable to transform low-income, excluded and environmentally-vulnerable communities. These enterprises are on the ground, have the trust of the communities and have created businesses aligned with their best interests.
We work with local people from Dublin 4, Dublin 6, Dublin 8 and Dublin 12 who would like to become self-employed and considering self-employment as an option.
DSCP have been instrumental in the development and set-up of a number of social enterprises in the local area, in response to local need. We also provide support to community groups that want to set up as a social enterprise and administer the Social Enterprise Small Grants Scheme
