SOSE was set up in 2020 to address the unique situation in the South of Scotland, and establish the South as a centre of opportunity, innovation and growth. It aims to drive inclusive growth, increase competitiveness, and tackle inequality within the region.

SOSE works across Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders, providing a range of services and support to help businesses and communities to realise their full potential.

SOSE works strategically with a number of key partners at national and regional level – see below for details. If you're a supplier interested in working with SOSE, please see Procurement. For more background, see the quick links below.
