The purpose of this article is to present the arguments behind the thesis that social economy initiatives have socio-economic benefits that are felt at the local and regional levels. These benefits are discussed through an analysis of the functions of social economy, understood as important goals, from the point of view of regional development policy, using the example of the project entitled “Academy of Social Economy Development”, implemented by the Regional Center for Social Policy in Cracow in the Małopolska voivodeship, in 2008-2015.
