Antz Network are a network of Business Charities & 3rd Sector organisations working together to deliver Social and Business impact in local communities.
We encourage you to seek out networks that can support you. There are a number of local and thematic networks which all have something different to offer so please take a look below.
At a Greater Manchester level, GMSEN is here to showcase SE activity across GM and connect SEs with opportunities, to identify and map the eco-system of support for SEs in the city region, provide signposting to networks and support that exist and to encourage the development of support in places and thematic areas where it is lacking.
This list is just a start and is growing - If you know an SE network in Greater Manchester that's missing, let us know. Also, get in touch if you don't see something that suits you. There may be another network or group we can link you in with or people who can advise you on how to set up your own!
