SEEK - Starting Social Enterprise

Making Change Happen

The SEEK programme is for people who are not in work and have a vision to make the world a better place by doing business for good through setting up a social enterprise business.   

What is a Social Enterprise Business?

A Social Enterprise Business uses the money it makes to put back into the business or local community, allowing the business to help deal with a social problem, support the community and help the environment.
