Who We Are

SEAM is a cross-sector partnership of agencies involved in the provision of support, training, guidance and services for social enterprises based and/or working in Midlothian.  The core purpose is to co-ordinate the skills, resources and expertise of existing agencies in order to support new and developing social enterprise and to help grow the strength of the sector in Midlothian. 

Social Enterprise in Midlothian

Midlothian has an active and growing social enterprise sector.  A small sample of local social enterprises can be found here.  If you are a social enterprise and would like to be added to this and other marketing opportunities supported by SEAM, please get in touch.

SEAM is an un-constituted partnership supported by MVA and Midlothian Council.  It is situated within the MVA premises in Dalkeith.  Membership is open to anyone with an interest in social enterprise in our communities. 

Who We Work With

We will work with anyone who has an interest in social enterprise.  This might include an individual unsure as to whether social enterprise is the right route for them, a charity seeking to increase its revenues through social enterprise or an existing social enterprise wanting to grow.  There are many (confusing) definitions of social enterprise but we are guided by the definition used by Senscot: (

SEAM and MVA run training which is open to social enterprises - further information can be found here.

SEAM runs occasional networking events.   For further information, contact Rebecca McKinney at 0131 663 9471.
