The SSE in Yorkshire, Humber & North East provides training in the form of action learning programmes and specialised workshops to enable individuals to use their entrepreneurial and creative skills to develop social enterprises that benefit the communities in which they live and work.
The region we cover is diverse. It includes some of the most deprived areas in the UK sitting alongside affluent cities, such as Newcastle and Leeds, the UK’s largest centre for financial and business services outside of London. Large parts of the region are rural, resulting often in pockets of isolated communities.The SSE prides itself in reaching out to individuals in all these areas that want to create social change – Ultimately we have a fantastic network of social entrepreneurs, who are a strong source of support for each other and for SSE Yorkshire & North East.
We are creating a series of initiatives with the aim of bridging the digital skills gap many social entrepreneurs have. We are also integrating the tech start up community and the social enterprise sector across our region.
