Growth and Resilience Hear from a Peer: Newcastle

 Registration is closed for this event


Are you a social enterprise, charity or community organisation interesting in hearing a bit more about developing sources of earned income and how social investment can support and grow your earned income potential? 

Would you like to hear from VCSE sector organisations who have 'been there, done that' and want to share their experiences and learning with others? 

If so, come along to this informal event where three organisations will share their enterprise development and social investment journeys with you.  We will also have the opportunity to quiz and question them on the good, the bad, the challenges and the opportunities created for their organisations. 

In this space, there are no daft questions, no social investors or enterprise support organisations promoting their products and services to you, just voices from the sector telling their stories and sharing their experiences.

Who is it for?

Social enterprises, charities, community businesses and local groups who are interested in finding out more about earning their own income and social investment.
