Future Development of the Social Enterprise Collection (Scotland) project records (part of the Social Enterprise Collection Scotland)

  • GB 1847 SECS-SGov
  • Fonds
  • 2018-2021

This collection is part of the Social Enterprise Collection Scotland.
Future Development of the Social Enterprise Collection (Scotland) was a Scottish Government funded collaborative project between Glasgow Caledonian University’s (GCU) Archive Centre and Yunus Centre for Business and Health. The Social Enterprise Collection (Scotland) is an umbrella heading for social enterprise related collections held at GCU Archive Centre. John Pearce's papers spearheaded the whole project in 2011. Part of the collection's preservation and cataloguing has been completed through successful funding bids and financial support from the social enterprise sector.

In February 2018 a proposal was submitted to the Scottish Government to resource a Project Archivist and a Historian for phase 1 of what was envisaged as a bigger project. The focus of this phase was 'collecting, preserving and interpreting the legacy of social enterprise in Scotland'. In October 2018 the Scottish Government agreed funding of £90,066 and the 18 month project began in November 2018. In December 2019 a proposal for phase 2 of the project was submitted to the Scottish Government with the aim of 'creating the tools for meaningful heritage ownership'. In March 2020 the Scottish Government agreed funding of £48,482 and phase 2 of the project began in May 2020.

The records cover activities of the project including, wider SECS related committee meetings; funding bid documentation; outreach through a travelling exhibition, workshops and social media; recording of oral histories; creation of an online toolkit for social enterprises to manage and preserve their records; creation of digital learning resources to support social enterprise education for the sector and universities; and work around capturing the Scottish social enterprise sector's response to COVID-19 .

The records have been arranged into 2 sub-fonds reflecting the phases of the project:

  • Phase 1: collecting, preserving and interpreting the legacy of social enterprise in Scotland records, 2018-2020
  • Phase 2: creating the tools for meaningful heritage ownership records, 2020-2021(to be catalogued as further accruals are collected)
