SSE has supported thousands of leaders of social change, who in turn have help millions of people in need.
They tackle a huge range of social and environmental problems, while creating meaningful jobs – often for the people who are most disadvantaged in the labour market.
Social entrepreneurs multiply the impact of support they receive.
In 2021-22, the social entrepreneurs we supported on our programmes in turn helped 1,610,000 beneficiaries.
Championing inclusion & diverse leadership
We believe diverse leadership can create a more equitable society. We accelerate this shift by supporting social entrepreneurs from marginalised and minoritised communities.
One in six people we support is disabled.
Creating economic impact
Social entrepreneurs we support grow their local economies.
The total income of 235 of our students’ projects increased from £36m to £41m in one year (and this is just a sample of everyone we support!).
Better leaders, building stronger organisations
