The Midlands has been the engine room for British industry, commerce, philanthropy and social change since the middle ages. SSE in the Midlands is growing the social economy in the region.
About SSE in the Midlands
SSE in the Midlands was established in partnership with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and Birmingham City Council with further support from PwC in the Midlands. This is a really exciting development for social entrepreneurs and social change agents operating across the Midlands looking for practical, action-oriented support to help move their idea from being a concept into a reality.
SSE in the Midlands offers a diverse range of learning and support programmes to social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs that range from support for those in the start-up phase through to social franchising and environmental entrepreneurs programmes. We also provide bespoke programmes to Public Sector, Academic Institutes, Corporate and SME customers. We offer consultancy on Business Strategy, Business Planning & Marketing.
