Abstract

Since the Grabiner Report (2000) there has been growing concern on the part of government at the scale of the informal economy. Most of the proposals to address this growth have focused on ways to deter such activity. But there have also been efforts to assist those who wish to legitimise their activities. Indeed, a paper in Local Government Studies outlined the case for local formalisation initiatives to assist this process (Williams, 2005)
This paper argues that a social enterprise approach to formalisation would be of benefit to tackling worklessness and social exclusion as well as generating further social economic activity in deprived neighbourhoods. The paper draws upon review research and original research work currently being conducted into formalisation strategies.
