Senscot works closely with these social enterprise intermediaries:
|THE SENS WEEKLY UPDATE||DATES FOR THE DIARY|
The SENs: Friday 23rd January 2015
Next week Social Firms Scotland and Senscot head to Brussels to participate in the EU Social Entrepreneurship Network closing conference. The EU SEN has looked to share good practice via ‘peer review’ meetings over the last two years – with one of its primary aims being to ensure a comprehensive support environment for social enterprises across the EU; and to equip partners to promote and implement projects involving social enterprise and social entrepreneurship. The event will conclude with a presentation highlighting results and recommendations. We’ll circulate this next week. For info, here’s the programme and delegate list.
One of our Community Food SEN members, The Fife Diet, is closing this March. After eight years (2007-2015), they are hanging up their boots. To celebrate what they have achieved and the wider local food movement they're proud to be part of, they are inviting people to host their own local food lunch. At the ‘Sunday Lunch’ on 8th March, they are having the biggest and best community lunch they’ve ever held, with Fife Diet members, their friends, family and neighbours, all joining together in communities across the kingdom for one big meal, see more.
This week, Cultural and Creative Social Enterprise Network members met to discuss the idea of holding a national event to raise the profile of cultural and creative social enterprise. The members are keen to focus on a pilot event this year, which will include social enterprises from across Scotland. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Sarah.
Scottish Community Re:Investment Trust (SCRT) delivered its first workshop/seminar this week on the back of its recent launch last month. A group of organisations from across the third sector participated in a ‘Crowdfunding’ Masterclass – led by Theresa Burton, CEO of Buzzbnk. If this is something that would be of interest to your organisation, please contact email@example.com . SCRT will evolve into a member-led organisation – open to all third sector orgs in Scotland. We hope as many SEN members as possible can sign to show their support – it’s FREE. To do so, see here
