scotland's social enteprise networks

The SENs – both place based and thematic - provide a forum for social enterprises to come together – for peer support; to share resources; and to work together to develop effective solutions to shared challenges.

They give social enterprises a collective voice with which to raise important issues at both a local and national level.
