We will shortly be announcing more details of a Social Enterprise Summit event on Thursday 15th November 2018, which is being organised by Greater Manchester Social Enterprise Network (GMSEN) and partners. The summit will be held in Manchester on Thursday 15th November 2018 – social enterprise day.

The event will will be aimed at social enterprises (including co-operatives, mutuals and community businesses) and those from all sectors who are looking to trade with social enterprises, support social enterprise or learn more about what social enterprise can offer them, their community and their city region.

The summit will culminate in the launch of the social enterprise strategy – see more below!

SAVE YOUR SPACE IN THE MARKETPLACE: There will be a marketplace where social enterprises and organisations who offer support can pitch up and showcase what they do and any products they sell. Please get in touch now if you’d like to be part of this so we can save you a space! Email [email protected]

Get the date in your diary now and look out for further announcements, coming soon…


The GMSEN stakeholder group, alongside key partners, have been hard at work drafting a strategy for social enterprise in Greater Manchester. The finished strategy will be launched at the Social Enterprise Summit event and will help us all build a stronger social enterprise movement for a thriving Greater Manchester.

We wanted to share the latest draft of the strategy with you, which you can view at this link: https://gmsen.net/content/social-enterprise-strategy-greater-manchester-your-comments-please
