Placed Based Social Enterprise Networks (SENs) have been set up across Scotland to ensure social enterprises have the support they need to start up, grow and prosper.

Place Based SENs are groups of active social enterprises who come together regularly with the intention of growing opportunities for themselves and the social enterprise sector locally. By doing so, they look to provide more effective services within their respective communities.

They can play an important role as a representative body connecting with other local agencies and, where appropriate, seek to influence policy at a local level. Place Based SENs vary in size and structure.

Place based SENs are part of the local third sector support landscape and many are partners with their local Third Sector Interface (TSI). TSIs cover every local authority area and provide a range of support to the wider third sector. For more information on the TSI Scotland Network.

Find out more about the function and impact of Scotland’s Place-Based SENs and their relevance within the Scottish Government’s ten-year Social Enterprise Strategy and three-year Action Plan.
