East Midlands Economic Network Limited
EMEN was set up to provide support to voluntary and community organisations, business support organisations, minority businesses and social enterprises across the East Midlands.
While developing projects itself, EMEN now specialises in working with ethnic minority communities and other disadvantaged communities to help them deliver solutions for themselves. EMEN has now become a social enterprise cooperative company limited by guarantee, thanks to an Awards For All grant.
