Punchier than usual: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Hmmm.  For once I haven’t got much to say.  It’s been that sort of week. Because I’ve not got anything else to write here, I’m going to use (abuse?) this space to ask if anyone knows a good roofer in Peckham?  (We’ve got water dripping down a cavity wall).

Anyway, here’s this week’s news:

  • If you are aged over 19 and not in work, SSE Cornwall is offering a free ‘Be Your Own Boss‘ social enterprise programme.
  • Huge congratulations to Sylvia and the team at SSE NorthWest, who won ‘Social Advocate of the Year‘ at this year’s Powerful Together Award.
  • Crowdcube’s Kieran Garvey will be speaking on our Unlocking Social Finance workshop on the 20th November, along with speakers from London Early Years Foundation, Big Society Capital, Social Finance Ltd, Social and Sustainable Capital and Esmee Fairbarn.  We’ll demystify social investment for you!
  • An interesting funding opportunity in London, as small businesses and community groups are encouraged to apply for part of a £9m High Street Fund to ‘help revitalise and even potentially change the way we use our high streets.’
  • SSE London fellow Alice Lacey and her organisation Now>Press>Play, who use wireless headphone technology to create immersive educational experiences for schoolchildren, are looking for maths scriptwriters on a freelance basis.  It’s a supper opportunity to get involved with a really innovative organisation.

Have a good week!
