Abstract

This paper reports a research study that examined a partnership between a regional social enterprise development agency and a university as they collaborated to develop a work-integration social enterprise (WISE) in the UK. Participants were members of the board of directors, steering group and the programme delivery and administration staff. The research elicited participant perceptions of the development of the partnership and the WISE over a period of eighteen months. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with participants in three phases: ‘early’, ‘middle’ and ‘late’. Results revealed the problems experienced by the partnership, which ultimately inhibited the development of a sustainable WISE
