Rebellion and Hastings Voluntary Action are delighted to announce a new 2-year programme of support for social enterprises and charities looking to develop enterprising activities. The East Sussex Social Enterprise Support Service has been supported by The Connect Fund, and launches this autumn providing a range of support, networking and learning opportunities for the sector.
The aim of the programme is to develop an East Sussex Social Enterprise Support Service and to strengthen relationships between social enterprises and social investment intermediaries and improve financial resilience.
We will create a member-led network of social enterprises to better understand their needs; to create a more supportive and resilient sector that can influence policy makers, such as the Local Enterprise Partnership.
The project will offer four quarterly networking events, training, and capacity building for social enterprises. The project will also recruit and train a network of 12 Social Investment Champions to act as an ongoing local peer resource to promote and build sector confidence in social investment products and services.
Watch this space for news of how to get involved and the first networking event will be on 13th November in Hastings (see our Events for more details)
