The programme is managed by our Enterprise Development Officer, Chris Hill, who has over 17 years experience in supporting social enterprises. Accredited training is also available through the project.

Social Enterprise introductory workshops

We delivered two sets of Social Enterprise introductory workshops (6 sessions per series) in 2019, covering understanding what a social enterprise is, legal structures and governance, business planning, marketing, finance, and building ongoing support and awareness.

We have been running a similar programme so far in 2020. There are no future course dates scheduled at this time. However, Chris is offering one-to-one advice sessions for budding social enterprises (one year or less). 

If you would like more details of the types of issues covered in our introductory workshops, or you would benefit from a one-to-one advice session, please contact Chris (as above).

Keep an eye on our Training Courses page for details.

Additional workshops are planned. For more information, please contact Chris (as above).
