Description:

The paper argues whether or not social housing or children's centres can be described as a social movement or enterprise. The author believes that in order to accurately determine whether such a claim can be made in either case it is necessary to provide a definition of both a social movement and social enterprise, and only after doing so will it be possible to determine whether either social housing or children's centres can be placed within such definitions. To this end, te paper defines both social movement and social enterprise and the author, based on those definitions, concludes that those taking part in social housing and children's centres can be viewed as taking part in both a social enterprise and social movement.

From the Paper:

"Social housing and children's centres represent two essential components of collective involvement in social services. As such, they play a pivotal role in providing socially based services which involve the wider community and therefore significant numbers of individuals and families utilise their benefits. Moreover, the definitional criteria that can be attached to such services are surprisingly wide and diverse. The purpose of this piece is to assess the extent to which either social housing or children's centres can be described as a social movement or social enterprise. Now in order to accurately determine whether such a claim can be made in either case it will first be necessary to provide a definition of both a social movement and social enterprise. Only after doing so will it be possible to determine whether either social housing or children's centres can be placed within such definitions."
