Welcome to Socent.ie
The Largest and Inclusive Knowledge Network for Social Enterprises in Ireland
We are on the lookout for social enterprises that can make a difference in communities and regeneration projects on the building site and construction projects. Do you know any?
We run events and networking opportunities throughout the year. We aim to bridge the gap between social enterprises across Ireland.
We aim to point you in the right direction to get your idea off the ground or take your organisation to the next level.
We aim for an Ireland where social enterprises are recognised as being a valuable and necessary part of the economy and society.
