Social enterprises are dynamic, innovative and diverse and they make a difference.
GMSEN wants to showcase SE across Greater Manchester and to connect SEs with each other, with the networks and organisations who can support them and with opportunities for business and growth. We also want to help businesses and organisations connect with this exciting and developing sector and find the right SEs to provide them with excellent products and services while delivering impressive social impact.
