Please take a moment to read the following terms and conditions of use.
iESE has been serving organisations that deliver local public services since its original formation as SECE in 2004. Learning many lessons along the way, we have developed as a partnership of partnerships, with strong Member leadership and officer support to meet the strategic needs of the South East. Our portfolio has evolved to meet the needs of the local authorities, not only in the South East, but also nationally, taking on the role as the national lead for areas such as Waste, Procurement, Social Care and Construction. We have also sought to support other public bodies with a common interest in local services, including those in the health, police and fire sectors. iESE has also worked closely with SME’s and the third sector.
