Our aim is to promote, support and develop social enterprises in Angus and to provide a space for collaboration and partnership working.
Angus SEN was established in March 2019 following 18 months of consultation with the third sector to develop the Angus Social Enterprise Strategy and 3 year action plan. The main purpose of Angus SEN is to promote, support and develop social enterprises in Angus and to provide a space for collaboration and partnership working. Social Enterprise has been growing in Scotland and this has been recognised by the Scottish Government in the creation of the 10 Year Social Enterprise Strategy and action plan. There are over 5000 social enterprises in Scotland, as identified by the 2017 SE Census, and 109 in Angus. There are many more enterprises that are at the start up stage too. The Strategy for Angus has been created to reflect the main themes in the Scottish Strategy as well as the local priorities. This page is the official Angus SEN page and will be a useful tool for communication, collaboration and the sharing of information. Membership is open to social enterprises that operate in Angus and meet the criteria of the Scottish Code of Practice and those that are developing a new enterprise, whether as a startup or as part of an existing third sector organisation.
