Social Enterprise Connect

  • University of Bristol 1.01 Howard House, Queen's Avenue BS8 1SD England (map)

Are you a social entrepreneur, a funder or social investor from the South West of England? 

In 2018, BSWN undertook a piece of Connect Fund funded research into the BAME Social Enterprise Sector in the South West (Engaging the BAME Social Enterprise Sector in Social Investment, 2018). 

We would like to invite you to the launch of the report to share findings from the research including key recommendations of how the sector can be better supported, including a guide for social investors, funders and policy makers on “How to engage”.

The event will also explore the role of Bristol and Bath Social Enterprises Place in strengthening the social enterprise/social economy sector in the city led by Social Enterprise UK and School for Social Entrepreneur (SSE), Dartington.

Guest speakers include Andrew O'Brien (Social Enterprise UK) and Elizabeth Hayes (Barrow Cadbury Trust, Connect Fund).
