We are offering a series of community workshops free of charge to Broadland residents and local groups who are interested in starting up a Social or Community Enterprise 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.

IT IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR APPRENTICESHIP FINISHERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO START UP THEIR OWN ENTERPRISE AND ORGANISATIONS LOOKING TO CREATE NEW TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH SPIN OFF SOCIAL IMPACT COMPANIES

We’ll start with a taster session so you can get a general overview followed by targeted workshops - you can choose to book the series or individual workshops according to what you feel you need.
