Trading charities and social enterprises are increasingly looking to social finance to fund expansion, new projects and working capital. Social finance is new and hardly understood by many organisations.
What is it?
Where does it come from?
How can you use it?
How can you get it?
Are you thinking about developing something new or need working capital. Thought about grants, loans, bonds, crowdfunding, community shares or a mix of these forms of social finance.
Get Social Finance Ready will help you answer these questions.
Get Social Finance Ready is a 6 weeks’ programme targeting organisations looking to achieve social impact and profit; and senior staff or trustees with responsibility for project development and/or organisational management.
This session will take place in Leeds at SEYHs base at Ebor Court followed by another cohort doing the course in Sheffield.
The dates are 20 Jan, 27 Jan, 3 Feb, 10 Feb, 17 Feb, 24 Feb.
All sessions start at 10:00 and finish at 13:00.
If you are a trading charity or a social enterprise you cannot afford not to explore what social finance can do for you and what you would need to do to become social finance ready through our 6 modules.
There will also be a special session with the Sheffield cohort in Spring meeting a range of social finance providers to discuss your plans and present what you've worked up from the Get Social Finance Ready Programme. If you miss one of the sessions you can attend the appropriate Spring Session in Sheffield to ensure you don't miss out.
This course is mainly funded by Awards for All with just a small administration fee of £30 to pay.
You'll also receive a free ticket included in the price to the North's biggest social finance event Working Capital which takes place in Spring.
