News from RISE: Moorcar now hold the Social Enterprise Mark

Moorcar have become the latest holders of the Social Enterprise Mark, adding to an ever growing list of diverse holders.

Moorcar is a car club which started in Ashburton in 2002 with one lease car and six members. It now has seven cars across four towns on the southern edge of Dartmoor and eighty members who share cars for those regular journeys, the school run, shopping, taking compost to the allotment, going to the theatre etc.

Jeremy Farr, Co-ordinator of Moorcar:
"We have been recognised as an organisation that aims to not only make a profit but to provide an ethical choice to consumers. If you too want to make a difference then joining a car club can save you money and help the environment."

The Social Enterprise Mark is the only label of its kind that is open to all types of social enterprises that successfully meet a set of qualification criteria. The Mark is being piloted in the South West before being rolled out nationally within the next year or so.

The Social Enterprise Mark is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund and it is sponsored by the South West Regional Development Agency, The Co-operative Group and Triodos Bank.
