If anyone is interested in supporting we are leading World Cleanup Day in the UK. It's a global movement to raise the issues of waste and litter. It's on 19th September...

Some great ideas coming out of the SEUK environment event today for those wanting to make their business more environmentally friendly and wanting to know where/how to start. Not being scared to start small, and collaborating - sharing ideas with others were good ones, as well as practical tips like changing all lighting to LEDs or continuing to support home working and remote meetings. Are there any others that your organisation is doing?

  ASPIRE project, Bangor, North Wales
Posted by: JohnNicholson - 06-23-2020, 01:42 PM - Forum: Requests for support - No Replies

Hi everyone! - I have just joined the group. 

I am trying to set up a Creative Community Arts Centre in North Wales, where people can explore and develop new skills to better the quality of their lives and leading towards employment or self employment. This is possible through funds available from a legacy from my parents estate - they were both artists. As well as funds I also have a considerable amount of basic machinery and equipment for a wide range of arts and crafts.  The plan was to buy St Mary;'s Church in Bangor which was for sale within budget, but the Church in Wales decided to sell to another group. I am therefore sitting on the money whilst searching for any alternative building - ideally a large church, chapel (with D1 planning category) or other listed building that requires some care and conservation and a new life serving community needs. 

I would love to hear from anyone inspired by this project, who might be interested in being involved in any way.

  Regenerating local economies
Posted by: jeffmowatt - 06-19-2020, 02:39 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

When lockdown comes to an end we face the enormous task of rebuilding/regenerating local economies which have been hit hard by the pandemic.  There are two precedents for doing this in a bottom up approach which benefits local people.  One is in the North of England the other in Russia and both are described as people-centered:

  Difficulties/opportunities for social enterprise
Posted by: heatherdinwoodie - 06-15-2020, 06:01 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hi everyone, 
I was wondering what specific struggles/opportunities have come up for social enterprises that don't apply to traditional for-profit start ups? How can social enterprises best move forward following COVID-19?


  Hampshire People Helping People
Posted by: Healthy Heads in Hampshire - 06-13-2020, 08:31 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hi all,

I'm an qualified psychotherapist and SSE graduate having started a Counselling CIC in 2019 while completing the Start Up Programme.
In light of the current climate I decided to start a project online to promote different forms of mental health support for people in Hampshire.
I am making short videos with other professionals and posting information about ethical and services in Hampshire. I'm a huge advocate of people helping people which is what motivated me to start this.
If you think your service may fit in with this idea, please do get in contact or follow my pages to see what you think.
Please do spread the word too.
Best wishes,
Claire Crampton

  Social Enterprise Commissioning
Posted by: Social Value Quality Mark - 05-21-2020, 10:26 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hi, 

We are working with a Local Authority in England. To increase the future engagement of Social Enterprises within their area. We would be keen to understand, what are the barriers to engaging with and bidding for Local Authority contracts. 

This will feed into their new procurement strategy and future focus on social value. 

Any views and thoughts would be most welcome.
