SEN Pilot

Scotland’s Social Enterprise Networks Found to Increase Connectivity by 1,000%

During 2017-18, U>P was piloted with 4 of the 22 Social Enterprise Networks (SENs) – Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Health – to give a broader, deeper understanding of the social impact being delivered for their members and the wider social enterprise sector. The pilot confirms that U>P provides a standardised methodology to measure and report on social impact, as per the aim of point 2F.5 of the first Social Enterprise Action Plan.

Key OutcomesThe results clearly demonstrate that SENs provide an invaluable support infrastructure for their members increasing connectivity by as much as 1,000%; 10 times the amount of connections they could access on their own.This report proves that social enterprises with access to a SEN gain significantly, individually and collectively, benefiting the sector as a whole. By joining a SEN, social enterprises in Scotland are best placed to understand how to plot their course through startup to scale up with access to peer support, expert professional network facilitators and direct, face-to-face connections.
