Winchester

Social Enterprise & Engagement


As a diocesan community we are committed to being ‘agents of social transformation’ (Strategic Priority 3).

One of the ways we hope to meet this challenge is through investing in and supporting socially transformative action across the communities of our diocese.

Winchester Social Enterprise (WSE) is a separate charitable company established to take this work forward. It is still at an early stage, but as different aspects and projects come on line we will update this pages accordingly.

If you’d like to know more about the objects and aims of WSE please contact Canon Nick Ralph: nick.ralph@w-se.org.uk
