Just a brief Friday SSE news update to point out that:
– Our Liverpool SSE is recruiting social entrepreneurs (see Activities and News), and our Hampshire, Devon and Yorkshire and Humber SSEs will soon. Keep your eyes peeled. Overseas, our Australia SSE is recruiting for its block programme in Sydney to start in September. Get in touch with the local/regional SSE in question for more info in each case via the links above.
– SSE Fellow Chris Dabbs's organisation, Unlimited Potential, has become the first organisation (and I believe the first SSE Fellow) in the North-West to win the Social Enterprise Mark. See the full news story. Unlimited Potential provides innovative health and wellbeing services, and was given the award by Social Enterprise Ambassador Daniel Heery (who's been blogging like a demon of late)
– Congratulations also to SSE Fellow Ros Spearing, whose organisation Ebony Horse Club won the Beyond Sport London Legacy Award this week. Which means not only recognition at a prestigious global event, and a presentation from Mayor Boris Johnson, but also £60,000 over 3 years
