During these difficult times we are busier than ever, delivering online to entrepreneurs across Cornwall and beyond to develop the skills, strengths and networks they need to tackle society’s biggest problems.
SSE in Cornwall
Established eleven years ago, the School for Social Entrepreneurs in Cornwall supports Social Entrepreneurs to realise their ambitions and create social change. As part of a network of global schools SSE Cornwall delivers programmes to support and equip people to start, scale and strengthen their organisations, making a significant positive difference to their local communities on issues they experience and are passionate about. Two-Thirds of social enterprises are supporting people from disadvantaged groups and 44% are employing them.
How we support social entrepreneurs
Over the years SSE in Cornwall has developed into a highly credible organisation with integrity at its heart. With the support of a very experienced Board of Directors the company has evolved into the go to place for Social Enterprise support in Cornwall.
We design, develop and deliver programmes of support from pre-start to leadership . Local support from Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership and Cornwall Council has been integral to its success.
