Yorkshire & North East
We equip people to improve the lives of others and transform communities across our region through development programmes, connections and support.
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. 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 our team in Yorkshire & North East.
