Online workshops

Our workshops help you develop the skills you need to progress and create change. They are designed for people working in charities, social enterprises, and public-sector organisations. They typically last a day or a couple of days.

Whether it’s finding funding, measuring your social impact, or making sense of social investment, our workshops will cut through the jargon and present each topic clearly and simply.

SSE programmes are for people starting up or growing projects that make a positive difference. We’ll help you develop the skills, confidence and networks you need. You’ll be supported for up to a year.

You’ll be in a safe and supportive group, learning from each other. You typically get together for a day or two a month. All are welcome, and you don’t need any qualifications.

Our programmes are usually free, and some include a grant (money you don’t pay back).
