We work to ensure that social enterprises in Scotland have the support they need to deliver positive outcomes in their communities.
Acting on behalf of front line social enterprises, we liaise with the Scottish Government to ensure that policy creation is both fair and effective.
Our main activities involve informing; connecting; and developing our social enterprise community:
- We ‘inform‘ via a popular weekly bulletin and other newsletters as well as a supporting website.
- We ‘connect‘ through the encouragement and support of for 18 local and 6 thematic Social Enterprise Networks (SENs) – independent forums of peer support, collective action and market development for Scotland’s social enterprises.
- We ‘develop‘ by working with others to identify gaps in support and seek to develop and incubate new services designed to strengthen Scotland’s social economy. In time, these services float off as independent bodies.
