Who are we?
The SENs is the name Senscot gives to our work with Social Enterprise Networks (SENs) - both thematic and geographical in Scotland. The first SEN was established in Fife in 2004. There are now more than 20 SENs operating across Scotland - 5 thematic and 18 geographically based - connecting over 1100 social enterprises.
See more about Senscot.
Much of the development and support involved in the emergence of SEN activity was carried out by our Networks Co-ordinator at the time, Colin Campbell. Colin has now moved to operate his own social enterprise - Assist Social Capital.
What do we do?
The SENs provide members with opportunities for:
- peer support
- resource sharing, joint working and development of markets
- a focal point for issues specific to social enterprise
- a collective voice both locally and nationally
- raising the awareness and profile of social enterprise both locally and nationally.
The vision is of a growing community of frontline social enterprises across Scotland - connected and energised through a network of Networks.
