Celebrating Staffordshire: A Place of Social Enterprise

Staffordshire has been given special recognition for its thriving, resilient and developing Social Enterprise community.

VAST, and Social Enterprise Matters, would like to invite Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent’s Social Enterprise community to a celebratory launch event.

At the Dudson Centre
On Wednesday 5th June
10:00 – 14:00

Registration from 09:30  

Not only will this exciting event commemorate this incredible achievement for Staffordshire, it will also be an excellent opportunity for the local Social Enterprise community to come together; to promote services and build new professional relationships.

With bite-size workshops, guest speakers, and “Soapbox” slots, the event will be a fantastic way to find new angles, discover new funding options and fill any knowledge gaps.

There will be networking opportunities with a free lunch and refreshments provided by local social enterprise The Dudson Cafe.

And a chance for local Social Entrepreneurs to showcase their own enterprises and win some great prizes in “Soapbox” slots. Places for the soapbox will be allocated on a first come first served basis so book early to avoid disappointment.

Speakers will include: 

  •  Social Enterprise UK
  •  Aspire Group
  •  RBS/Natwest Community Finance

And you will have a choice of workshops: 

  • Social Enterprise and Community Finance
  • Social Value & Social Impact
  • Income Generation for Growth and Sustainability
  • Enterprise Strategy and Business Planning
