About Us

We were established in 2008 and are currently based in Leeds.

Here at SEYH we have 5 main aims to deliver to our members.

We will…


Develop a strong regional social enterprise network

Support existing and developing social enterprises

Research, represent and lobby on behalf of the sector

Promote and raise awareness of the sector externally

Explore new market opportunities for social enterprises to encourage growth

Meet the SEYH Team

Here at SEYH we have a very small, yet select team.

This is mainly SEYH employees, Board members and volunteers working together for our social enterprise members.
