About us

Since 2013 we have been busy bringing social entrepreneurs together and promoting collaboration. We have held 16 networking events and worked with nearly 200 social enterprises.

In 2016 we will launch Social Enterprise East Sussex as a community interest company owned and run by its members. Social Enterprises large and small will be able to join as members and take positions on the management board. This is an important step in the structuring and sustainability of Social Enterprise East Sussex. We will soon be making a call for membership and expressions of interest to join the management board.
