Our staff team can offer direct practical support and advice to existing and aspiring social enterprises in Dundee. This includes help to access funding and loans, procurement and tendering opportunities, business support, information and training.

We have around 52 full members, approximately 10 aspiring members and a range of corporate and associate members who all trade in the City. Jointly the full members employ over 730 people and have a business turnover of more than £24 million.

As a network, we encourage intra-trading between members both in Dundee and with the wider social enterprise community in Scotland.

We have an active Board of Directors who have a clear and ambitious vision to develop and grow the social enterprise sector in Dundee.
