Our long-standing, award-winning programme encompasses: a social enterprise hub in London, which drives growth and collaboration in the sector by bringing together leading social enterprise organisations including Social Enterprise UK, the School for Social Entrepreneurs and our own social enterprise bistro Brigade; a social entrepreneurs’ club which supports the development of individual leaders of social enterprises across the UK; and a buy social programme which provides a route to market for social enterprises. The depth and breadth of our support for the sector as a whole is unparalleled.
