Welcome to the GMSEN Social Enterprise Directory
This directory is designed to help customers find social enterprises in Greater Manchester that they can buy from or trade with. It is also intended to help individuals, businesses and organisations find social enterprises they may wish to support according to their social impact.
Social Enterprises can be searched by either key word, or you can use the sector and borough filters. This directory is focused on Greater Manchester and is free to register and use. You may also wish to use Social Enterprise UK’s Buy Social Directory which includes social enterprises from outside Greater Manchester.
