Social Enterprise Reset Week SENSCOT
In May, SENSCOT in partnership with Social Firms Scotland and the local SENs hosted Social Enterprise Reset Week which was a week dedicated to connecting and engaging frontline, community based social enterprises across the country. The purpose was to gather information and share experiences throughout the Covid 19 pandemic period, as well as focusing on future funding needs for the sector. Angus Sen jointly hosted with Dundee SEN, a regional network meeting with SENs from theTayside and North East area which we received positive feedback about and we are keen to do this again in due course.
