Who we are

Secod was formed in 2006 by three experienced social enterprise advisers. We met through Enterprising Communities - a very successful grant funded social enterprise support project which we worked together on.

When the funding ended we decided to set-up our own business and continue supporting social enterprises in a more sustainable way.

Professionally recognised, our qualifications are backed up by a wide range of experience with both large and small social enterprises, private sector firms and the public sector.

We have all run our own businesses and are voluntary directors of other social enterprises and members of co-ops and credit unions.
