ESSENCE delivers the Exeter component of the activities for The Heart of the South West Enhance Social Enterprise Programme. This programme is receiving funding from the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural & Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. Thanks to this work we are able to offer (signposting to) business support, and able to collaborate with the other regional Social Enterprise Networks.
As part of enhancing the work of Social Enterprise Network, ESSENCE receives support from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, through the Postcode Innovation Trust. Thanks to this funding we are able to offer workshops and business advice for free.
