Our Background

Home » BSSEC CIC » Our Background

BSSEC CIC has always been a small but influential membership organisation seeking to support trading social businesses, primarily in Birmingham and Solihull until recently growing to include the West Midlands Combined Authority region.

At the beginning, a group of likeminded individuals came together over 20 years ago, concerned that they wanted to share information and opportunities for their social businesses and work in partnership. Alun Severn provided leadership and secretariat support, an influential figure in the social economy landscape over many years, stepped down from this role in July 2022. Many of the original members are still involved in supporting BSSEC CIC and they have especially valued the continuing information service which has been a constant over the years!

As BSSEC CIC evolves with new Board members, new Members and subscribers – the original purpose of information sharing, resource and collaborative working remains strong.   

We would also like to thank Fovea Creative for the stunning social economy imagery you see on the BSSEC CIC website.
