Dear members and friends, TV repeat this week of ‘Dancing with Wolves’, which I’d somehow managed to miss (since 1990!).

Initially funded as one of the SE Action Plan’s ‘early actions’, P4P has, in its first year, connected with over 70 social enterprises/third sector orgs; held over 20 events/surgeries; established two consortia; and supported tender submissions for 7 […]
