Cobbled together in a bit of a hurry: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

This is going to be short and to the point as I’ve been out and about spreading the word of SSE this week and only spent about 5 minutes at my desk. Broken links, bits I’ve missed out, bad spelling and missed punctuation should be attributed to me only starting this about two minutes ago.

Normal service (of inexcusable broken links, bad spelling and missed punctuation) will resume next Friday.

  • Social Impact App have put together a cool map which collates social enterprise restaurants from across the world.  They also have an iPhone app which extends to other businesses too.



  • According to an alarmist headline in the Daily Express (it was on a train, and no, I’ve never met anyone who reads it either) we’re going to be plunged into some sort of Arctic winter next week.  Sounds like a perfect time to buy some knitwear! Luckily SSE Fellow Debbie Judd has just the thing, through her social enterprise Neighbourworks.






  • The Growing Localities awards offers £2500 in prize money to projects which use nature to ‘enhance communities and the lives of vulnerable and socially-excluded people’.


  • SSE Course Update 1:  SSE Scotland still has space on its Understanding Your Finances course on December 4th – 5th.   Vital if you want to get to grips with your accounts.


  • Finally – a big thank you to everyone who tweeted last week’s news.  We made it over 20,000 followers!  (Now I just need to come up with a scheme to get them all to send me a pound…)


I’ll be at Good Deals on Monday and Tuesday, say hi if you are there!  Have a good week.
