Social Enterprise Day 2007: aftermath / round-up

Just a quick list of links to some of the activity associated with that day (in addition to previous posts here and here):

Business link guide launched on "why social enterprise?"
Department of Health pack launched, signposting to support and guidance on setting up a social enterprise in the health and social care sector
– Five ‘think pieces’ commissioned by the Office of the Third Sector were published (authors include Jeremy Nicholls and Andrea Westall). See OTS website for the list + downloadable pdfs of each. I’ll try to give reaction to these as and when….
– OTS also gave an update on one year since the social enterprise action plan.
– The Welsh Assembly also got involved: announcing that it "is committed to strengthening the framework of financial and asset related support available to new and expanding social enterprises" in this press release

[NB – no credit to me: these are culled from the mighty VolResource newsletter]
