KSU, together with the undersigned organisations, applaud the Government for taking the initiative and legislating for social enterprises, particularly considering their importance to Maltese society and the positive effect they have on such. The Bill will allow social enterprises to have a better structure and hence have a more fluid and efficient mode of functionality.

Social enterprises will benefit those persons who have been facing and will continue to face these realities and will undoubtedly have an impact upon their lives, allowing them the opportunity to integrate within the workforce. The fact that these enterprises now have their position solidified within the legislative structure, will hopefully incentivise more people to make use of this type of enterprise, as the benefits they provide to our society are infinite. Creating more of an interest in social enterprises and harnessing their benefit on both a personal and a societal level is most definitely a step in the right direction.
