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.

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.
