The Social Enterprise Support Centre Limited is a registered Industrial and Provident Society. SESC supports social enterprises to become financially sustainable, deliver quality services, and where appropriate, supports their efforts to gain and deliver public service contracts. Not all social enterprises are interested in contributing to public service delivery, either because their particular service isn't appropriate, or because they do not want to grow beyond an optimum size for their customers. SESC respects these organisational views and will seek to support their particular business and social aims.
