The potential contribution of social cooperatives and other form of social enterprises to work integration, job creation, and service delivery remains largely unrealized in Ukraine. This paper focuses on an analysis of the role of social cooperation in providing employment opportunities and wide range of general interest services for stakeholders and local communities. Institutional aspects and legal frameworks are considered in order to define the appropriate environment system for social enterprises sector support and fostering. Attention was also paid to frame of the policy for social cooperatives support on the mezzo-level (regional), taking in account ongoing decentralization of public authority that is allowing to clarify what level of authority should be responsible for concrete policy measures elaborating.
