Event Postponed – Growing Enterprising Communities – 18 May 2019, Arrochar

Please note that the Growing Enterprising Communities event, scheduled for Saturday the 18th May has been postponed.

The one day event to bring together people active in community learning and development to look at enterprising approaches will be rescheduled for later in the year.

This Social Enterprise Academy programme in partnership with the Community Partnership is open to a wide range of people, including those working in learning centres, youth work, outdoor activities, libraries, as well as those addressing specific issues or running facilities like community and village halls. It is a broad sector, facing common challenges around financial viability and increasing demands on services. There is an opportunity to work in new ways, generating more income and with it independence.

Contact us to register you interest in the event!

We hope you can join us at a later date to explore these ‘enterprising approaches’ and how they can sit alongside voluntary and grant-base work, enabling more great work to happen.

Sharing experiences and thinking about options for your organisation

The ‘Community Learning and Development’ sector is finding funding hard to come by.  Some organisations have tried new approaches to enable their work to continue, despite the current financial climate.  This day is about sharing those experiences and giving you the space to think about options for your own organisation.

What will you get out of this programme?

  • Look at ways to grow your work in the community
  • Hear from people who have found enterprising solutions to funding challenges
  • Share experiences with your peers from across the north of Scotland
  • Carry out action planning for your own work

Who is it for?

The day is open to anyone supporting or enabling people/communities to learn or develop.
