Duration:

1 day

Social enterprises are playing an increasing role in our communities. More and more local authorities are exploring the opportunities this can offer, but many are concerned the concept could present a threat to public services.

You will get the chance to understand in more depth what social enterprise is really about, discuss examples of when it’s really working and when it’s really not and consider practical ways in which your local authority could harness social enterprise to tackle some of its key challenges.

 

On this programme you will:

  • Deepen your understanding of social enterprise
  • Discuss real-life examples of the impact of social enterprise on local authorities
  • Consider if and when spin-outs could help secure under-threat services
  • Learn about some of the ways social enterprises are tackling challenges in our communities
  • Start to outline a strategy to help your local authority make the most of social enterprise

 

Learners

This programme is designed for senior staff in local authorities, particularly those with responsibility for services such as social care, leisure, or waste, for example.  It will also be of interest to staff who work with social enterprises as part of their role, and anyone interested in the potential of social enterprise to deliver social impact in the community.

 

Cost

Due to the support of the Rank Foundation we have been able to offer this programme at half the normal cost.
