Torbay Social Enterprise Network (TSEN)

Being connected is powerful.

TSEN: the rising social & green economy

Imagine a local economy that provides opportunities for everyone to meet their needs in ways that are fair and sustainable. If we can imagine it, we can make it happen.  This is what the Torbay Social Enterprise Network is all about, creating the conditions for connecting, innovating and collaborating to have a positive impact on the lives of the people in Torbay.
