Purpose: This paper explores the wellbeing impacts of social enterprise, beyond a social enterprise per se, in everyday community life. Design: An exploratory case study was used. The study's underpinning theory is from relational geography, including Spaces of Wellbeing Theory and therapeutic assemblage. These theories underpin data collection methods. Nine social enterprise participants were engaged in mental mapping and walking interviews. Four other informants with 'boundary-spanning' roles involving knowledge of the social enterprise and the community, were interviewed. Data were managed using NVivo, and analysed thematically.
