Social enterprise workshop with Jericho Foundation
What does ‘social enterprise’ actually mean in practice and is it relevant to Christian mission in our local communities?
Jericho Foundation has over 20 years’ experience of running social enterprise businesses across Birmingham with a core Christian mission at its heart to help break down the barriers of unemployment in the city. Today Jericho employs approximately 72 core staff with a further 17 apprentices and a survivors of human trafficking project undertaking supported work placements across 8 social enterprises. Jericho has a turnover of approx £3.2m a year of which 86% comes from social enterprise trading.
This interactive, inspiring workshop by Jericho Foundation aims to connect, equip and empower churches with the knowledge and resources to engage in social change through social enterprise by sharing their wealth of experience. You’ll get a brief insight into the world of social enterprise and come away with some practical steps that will inspire you to pioneer and start developing your own enterprises in the local communities you serve.
