Regional Social Enterprise Day events

North East

The North East Social Enterprise Partnership is holding a series of sub-regional events across the North East on Social Enterprise Day.  The events, taking place in Tees Valley, Durham and Northumberland, will explore a range of issues and will be bound by the common theme of addressing what sort of business support is needed by social enterprises to prosper and take up new opportunities presented by the Big Society.

North West

Following the sell-out success of last year’s Social Enterprise North West Trade Fair, this year the ‘In Business for Good’ Trade Fair will be taking place on Social Enterprise Day at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.

Last year’s event attracted over 90 exhibitors and 600 delegates and this year offers opportunities for trading and networking as well as the chance to participate in workshops on contracting with social landlords, franchising, the Personalisation Agenda and much much more.

The annual Trade Fair, supported by the Northwest Regional Development Agency, is also an excellent way for the public sector to see how the government’s Big Society Social Enterprise North West logo

is already being delivered in practice, across the North West.

Speaking on the day are Philip Blond, Director of ResPublica, Clare Dove, CEO of Blackburne House and Liam Byrne MP (invited).

These sessions have been funded by the South West Regional Development Agency.
