We would love for you to join us for a creative workshop on designing a vision for social impact and social enterprise in Bradford – everything from the support that innovators need, to ensuring that Bradford’s diversity of voices are represented.
Access (The Foundation for Social Investment) and Big Society Capital have invited twelve cities to submit a proposal to their ten-year £33m programme of support for charities and social enterprises. Bradford is one of the cities Access and Big Society Capital have identified as being of significant interest; five cities will be selected, meaning Bradford could access £6m to build resilience and provoke some innovation. For our social enterprise scen and the community and voluntary sectors, this could be a game changer.
Our workshop will be supported by a local representative from Access, but we want to invite the city’s most innovative and creative minds to shape Bradford’s bid.
We’ll get to know each other over lunch and then spend the afternoon developing our ideas together…
- 1:30 pm – Arrival & Lunch
- 2-5:00 pm – Workshop Activities
So if you’re working in a social venture, charities or community organisations, whether you are young, old, retired, a student or a professional, do join us and let’s see how Bradford can make its case to be a vital hub for social enterprise.
