Social Enterprise Policy and Practice Conference 2023

Thursday 26 October

Join us at the annual Social Enterprise Policy and Practice Conference 2023 on Thursday 26th October at the Greyfriars Charteris Centre, Edinburgh. The event keynote speaker is Neil Gray MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Wellbeing Economy, Fair Work and Energy.

Hosted by Social Enterprise Scotland (SES), this year we evolve the conversation from the 2023 Conference to feature discussions and the latest thinking, policy updates, and practice news from across the country. The primary Conference focus is on the third and final Social Enterprise Action Plan 2024 which supports the ambitious 10 Year Social Enterprise Strategy. This is in the context of emerging policy relating to Community Wealth Building and the move of social enterprise from the Third Sector Division to the Wellbeing Economy. 

The Conference will feature a range of topics and in person and online discussions and keynote presentations. Join us for the afternoon of sector speakers, informative roundtable discussions and extensive networking opportunities.
