We would love for you to join us for an open consultation session on support for social enterprises. If you’re a charity, social enterprise or interested in starting a venture with a social purpose, we’re interesting in hearing your ideas and thoughts on the kinds of support programmes you might need.
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 scene and the community and voluntary sectors, this could be a game changer; 30 Chapel Street has been asked to lead Bradford’s bid for this fund.
We’ll get to know each other over coffee and then spend the morning hearing your thoughts and ideas…
- 9:00 am – Arrival & Refreshments
- 9:30-12:30pm – Consultation workshop
So if you’re working in a social venture, charity or community organisations, do join us and help shape Bradford’s bid with your thoughts for what you or your organisation need.
