Social entrepreneurs from across South Yorkshire came together to mark International Social Enterprise Day at a Sheffield conference to address social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Social enterprises put people, communities and environment before profit and operate in many sectors of the region’s economy including health and social care, food, transport, creative industries and community development.

Azz Mohammed from Sheffield Live! spoke to Terry Murphy, Network Coordinator at the Sheffield Social Enterprise Network about the importance of the event.

Terry said: “It’s an opportunity for people to connect and share learning. It’s just a way of us revitalising that energy because we are living through really challenging times and people are fatigued and demotivated so events like this are really important to build that energy again in the network.”
