Argyll & Bute Social Enterprise Network (SEN)

Argyll & Bute SEN (ABSEN) was set up in 2004. The first meeting took place in Rothesay on Bute hosted by Fyne Homes. Here We Are and Bute Credit Union were founder members and are still active members.

ABSEN currently covers the largest area geographically of any of the Social Enterprise Networks which is an added complication but the group has not let this get in their way.

A mapping exercise undertaken in 2015 ascertained that the social enterprise sector has a combined income of almost 40.7m, a spending power of 38.7.8m and total assets of 15.1m. See more details and full report.
