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 SSE prides itself in reaching out to individuals in all these areas that want to create social change. We have a thriving 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 and integrating the tech start up community and the social enterprise sector across our region.
