Social Enterprise Places are areas where social enterprise activity is thriving. With the support of Santander, the Places Programme recognises towns, cities, boroughs and villages - and awards them with the Social Enterprise Place badge, celebrating their achievements and supporting them to grow.
The Places Programme was launched with a live broadcast on BBC Breakfast from Alston Moor in Cumbria - the UK's first Social Enterprise Place. There are now 19 Social Enterprise Places across the UK, and we're soon to announce the first international Social Enterprise Place.
The programme has received support from MPs and local authority leaders, and ex-Prime Minister, David Cameron.
This free event in Birmingham will celebrate the first three years of the programme. Hear about the learnings, as well as examples of best practice.
The event will be attended by partners from the 19 Social Enterprise Places in the UK and by other third parties keen to network and discuss of the opportunities to build a local social economy.
Guests will have the opportunity to network. Lunch will be provided.
