Testimonial
“This makes me tingle, it’s really inspiring” Lisa Stewart, on attending her first meeting.

If you are thinking of joining the Network then great! We have the following membership categories:

  • Full membership with voting rights is for social enterprises based in and around Plymouth and each member organisation holds one vote at meetings.
  • Associate membership is for anyone or any organisation or individual, such as partners and social enterprise support organisations that wants to promote the aims. Associate members do not hold any voting rights.

At our 16th May 2013 AGM we introduced membership fees based on income of the organisation (we define income as trading income plus grants).
