If you’re wondering how to keep the kids entertained over the next six weeks, Wales Co-operative Centre is here to help.

Our Social Summer 2019 campaign aims to showcase the wonderful and inclusive social enterprises on your doorstep that you can visit and support.

We’ve got nature reserves, culture hubs, zoos, bowling alleys, art galleries, watersports activities, leisure centres, cafes and even a castle to choose from.

Social enterprises operate like private businesses, but with one big difference, all profits are invested back into good causes and the local community.

So when you take your kids to visit a social enterprise, not only will you have a brilliant day out, but your money will be going towards projects that benefit local people and the environment. Your trip to the zoo could help save animals, the bikes you hire could help disabled people join in the family cycling trip and the coffee you drink to get you through the day could help somebody get back into the world of work.

Because social enterprises play a crucial role in helping local communities thrive, we want the Welsh public to get behind them and show their support.

So, if you are looking for activities and places to visit in your area, why not consider visiting the family-friendly social enterprises in our downloadable guides below.
