Social Enterprise Seminar

HAVE YOU GOT A SOCIAL ENTERPRISING IDEA?

 

A ‘Social Enterprise…is it for me?’ Event will be taking place in the Community and Voluntary Service (CVS) on Bromham Road on Wednesday 25th January, supported by Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council.

 

Aimed at people who have a business idea and would like to support the local community, this event will explore the concept of social enterprise through two seminars that have been designed to help delegates understand what a social enterprise is, offer practical advice on how to start one and provide a list of useful contacts that can help interested parties along the way.    

 

‘What is a Social Enterprise?’ will start at 10am, followed by ‘How do you start a Social Enterprise?’ at 11.30am. 

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson said: “Social Enterprise can encompass a wide range of activities, products or services and there are many opportunities that people may want to pursue. Individuals can come along to this event to gather information and pick up helpful advice, guidance and ideas that could set them on their way to starting a new business which makes a positive difference to the community. This event is an ideal way to help local people looking to take steps to achieve their professional goals and serve their local community at the same time.”

 

The event has been supported by Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council and is organised in partnership with the Community and Voluntary Service, Social Enterprise East of England, Exemplas, Natwest, HM Revenue and Customs and Park Woodfine Solicitors.
