We are offering a series of community workshops free of charge to residents and local groups who are interested in starting up a Social or Community Enterprise which will have positive impact in the Broadland and South Norfolk area and would like practical support in a relaxed and interactive environment.
You may feel ready to get started or just thinking about what you would like to achieve – it is also appropriate for groups who are already constituted but need to find ways to become financially sustainable.
We’ll be delivering targeted workshops and finish the programme with a “surgery session” to support your progress. You can choose to book the series or individual workshops according to what you feel you need.
