A Social Gathering is open to anyone with an interest in Social Enterprise. Students, educators, successful and established social entrepreneurs, new and emerging social entrepreneurs, community groups, charities, non-profit organisations and members of the local business community.

  • To benefit from partnership and collaboration opportunities
  • To promote your organisation

Event format

The event will begin with a themed talk on the subject of social entrepreneurship and will follow with the opportunity for others to sign up to share their story and showcase their social enterprise or talk about some of the issues that are important to them.

We hope for this to be the first of a regular series of informal networking events, with each session featuring a themed talk looking at the social enterprise sector, what we do and why it’s important and will offer the opportunity to individuals and organisations to have their say.

This will be an informal drop in event with tea, coffee, buns and friendly conversation available throughout.
