Start up Social Cooperative Enterprises (SCE)

Here the video case of the Greek city – Dononi

The Municipality of Dodoni has the highest senior citizen rate in the country along with a huge problem of lack of services for their welfare, while the elders also confront the low accessibility to health infrastructure and benefits. Moreover, the municipality has the necessity of infrastructure for disabled people and for staff with expertise. On the other hand, there is a monumental cultural heritage that is not exploited to the maximum, whilst it constitutes a great advantage for Dodoni. Because of the above mentioned issues and because the existing social functions are unable to seize the possible potentials on their own, the Municipality of Dodoni has decided to support and promote the idea of the establishment of Social Cooperative Enterprises (SCE). The establishment and development of the social enterprises is supported by the Social Enterprise Ecosystem in Greece (SEE-GR) initiative. The ecosystem aims at providing financial and non-financial services such as seed capital in the form of a loan and specialised consultation services (mentoring) to the social enterprises during their first three years of operation. These initiatives will be supported by the Local Bank.
