Are you interested in setting up a business that will benefit your local community and create employment?

Our free workshop in Bray on 6th December will explain what a Social Enterprise is and the key elements to consider when setting one up.

Social enterprises are businesses set up to benefit the local community. They provide valuable services and jobs and invest any profits back into the business or the local community.

Examples could be a charity shop, a community café, an environmental project, a sports, health or well-being service, or a manufacturing business designed to provide employment to a particular group of people.

The workshop takes place from 10am-1pm on Thursday 6th December and  will cover: 

  • Different types of social enterprises
  • The five key elements to get right
  • Corporate governance, funding and human resources
  • Getting a social enterprise off the ground. 

Limited places - you must be an individual or group in Bray, Delgany, Greystones, Kilcoole, Kilmacanogue, Newcastle Lower or Newtownmountkennedy to qualify to attend.
