Are you starting, running or growing a project that creates social or environmental change? We’re here to help…

The School for Social Entrepreneurs has been supporting the leaders of social change for 23 years. Rest assured that we’re not about to stop now.

We’re going to do everything we can to help small charities, social enterprises and community projects through these uncertain times.

We’ve responded rapidly and effectively. We’ve taken all our learning online for the time-being, and we’re connecting people in online groups for peer support. We’re getting really positive feedback from SSE students on our online sessions, and we’re refocusing learning to best meet fast-changing needs.
