WHO ARE WE

Fife Social Enterprise Network (FSEN) is an independent, non-profit membership organisation which promotes, supports and represents social enterprises in Fife. 

We are the first social enterprise network to serve the businesses in Fife. The network was launched in 2004 with the backing of social enterprises in the area. Since then, the network has grown and established connections with local institutions and presence on various social media. With the support of Fife Council, Business Gateway Fife, Fife Economy Partnership and other institutions, FSEN are becoming involved at a strategic level with the government to represent the needs and views of members.

Our Mission

FSEN's goal is to support the best interests of existing and emerging social enterprises in Fife. These organisations range from established social businesses to smaller voluntary sector organisations. We aim to provide invaluable resources and support for these organisations by having the best value for FSEN membership and ensure we understand their needs. FSEN offers access to a strong member-led network, leverage to engage with wide-ranging institutions in the area and the opportunity to promote business via our website, membership network and online platforms.

Social Enterprises today

Social enterprises in Fife are not immune to national and international business trends in the sector. There is now a trend among social enterprises to move some of their marketing activities online and to seek to reach out to customers via social media platforms. The three most significant trends are the connection through networks, the increase in collaboration, and business digitisation.
