We're working with @NHS_HS over several sessions to explore what role community café activity plays within social enterprise, examining issues around sustainability and considering different business models.
First session in Aberdeen, 18th June:
The next meeting of the Angus SEN will be on Tuesday 4th June at @FriockHub.
You'll hear from Community Focus Scotland founder Annette Tonner, as well as having the opportunity to connect with other social entrepreneurs in the area.
The Perth & Kinross Social Enterprise Network Marketplace is taking place on Saturday 1st June this year.
This year's event will be combined with PKSEN's Volunteer Street Market to make one big event with over 30 stalls in Perth city centre. pic.twitter.com/46bV…
So far, over 1100 organisations have responded to this year's Social Enterprise Census.
We need more though! The census is a vitally important tool when it comes to influencing policy, so please spare just 10-15 minutes for the sector!
