The Social Enterprise Hub

The Social Enterprise Hub provides training and opportunities that enable people with entrepreneurial ideas to achieve positive change in their communities.

Whether your business is established, just starting out or still at the ideas stage, our programmes can provide the support you need to progress your enterprise. That support might come in the form of funding, learning opportunities, office space, or something else entirely – but if you’re someone who wants to make a difference in your community, the Social Enterprise Hub has a range of opportunities to explore.

Many of our programmes are delivered through the Dartington arm of the School for Social Entrepreneurs – you can find out what that means here – and made possible through our partners and funders.

Pop in and see us any time at our new home: SSE Hub Dartington, Lescaze Offices, Shinners Bridge, Dartington, Totnes, TQ9 6JE. A map can be found below or downloaded here (pdf). Please note that all parking at the Lescaze Office is allocated to tenants. If you are visiting us or using our premises and need to park your car, we can provide you with a temporary parking permit so long as you are parking in one of our allocated parking bays. These can be found next to the entrance to the SSE offices where our five parking bays are clearly labelled ‘SSE Hub Dartington’. We also have three parking bays at the rear of our offices – numbers 22, 23 and 24.

If all our bays are full, there are a limited number of visitor parking bays where parking is limited to two hours (see map) and roadside parking (A385).
