Although OSEP is currently managed by the three partners the intention is to engage with the social enterprise community, other social enterprise support organisations and to establish a network of people and enterprises who will become Associates. They will help develop the programme of support available so that it meets their needs. As OSEP becomes more established there will be a series of events specifically aimed at the local social entrepreneur community. Our aim is simple - to be the best network of support and funding for social entrepreneurs in the UK. We will publish regular newsletters containing latest news and developments across Oxfordshire.
In March 2014 the Universities worked with Student Hubs to put in a bid to UnLtd to set up a regional network for all social entrepreneurs operating across Oxfordshire irrespective of whether they had a connection with any of the Universities.
