The SENs: Friday 17th October 2014

Senscot supports 4 thematic SENs and Roundtables – Health; Sport; Community Food; and Culture/Creative – with around 300 SEs members/engaged. This work is supported by Scottish Govt Third Sector Division; the Scottish Govt Health Directorate; Creative Scotland; and Sportscotland. Over the last year, the focus has been on exploring the linkage between the activities of respective thematic SEN members and the scope for joint working. So far, this has seen the establishment of Joint Thematic Roundtables; linking with local SEN Co-ordinators to connect their members with thematic SENs; working with Visit Scotland and Glasgow Marketing Bureau re tourism opportunities relating to sport; culture and community food; and the development of a Map of Support  For further examples of the work of the thematic SENs, see some highlights here

There’s only one week left to throw your hat in the ring for this year’s Dragons’ Den at our SE Conference and Ceilidh, see
here. We still have a few day delegate places left for the event but overnight places are now just about at capacity. For info the programme is available here.

A wee reminder the deadline for completing the SE survey is
Wed 22nd October. Recently, we referred to our intention to contribute towards a SE Strategy for Scotland over the coming months – to dovetail in with similar emerging ‘strategies’ from the likes Scottish Govt; HIE; EU Funding; BIG Lottery etc. As a starting point, we are trawling thoughts and opinions on a range of subjects for a SE submission to the Smith Commission on additional devolution to Scotland. Senscot, with others, would very much appreciate if you could take some time to fill in the attached survey – roughly 20-30mins. This is the first stage of a process in which we hope to include as wide a representation of our SE community as possible.

Social Impact Measurement
(Just Enterprise / Social Enterprise Academy)

This programme is for individuals and organisations interested in proving the value of their organisations’ work. It is of particular benefit to organisations tendering for contracts or exploring private sector support as there is growing recognition of the ‘added value’ of social impact within both private and public sector contracts.
