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.

We provide learning interventions for local people who need help looking for work but have multiple barriers to sustainable employment. Multiple barriers include, but not limited to, low skills (including maths, English and digital), low confidence, long term unemployment, long term illnesses, learning difficulties and mild to moderate mental health issues.
|Joining Communities sells a service that is free at the point of contact to support people to overcome their complex barriers to work. The services comprises group workshops and one-to-one support for those with socialisation issues or more personal issues. This could mean an intervention to help them become more work ready or individual interactions to help them prepare for returning to work. Wherever they are in their journey, we will help them find their starting point and identify a route to a sense of wellbeing and a more fullfilled lifestyle which includes being in work.|
