How we can help

We can support you at each stage of developing your Social Enterprise, from discussing your idea and starting up through to growth and expansion. 

You may look for general information on Social Enterprise as a way of doing business, a charity looking to generate income by developing a trading arm, or a commercial business wanting to realise social ambitions.

We have a dedicated Social Enterprise adviser based locally to help with all aspects of:

  • Planning and Developing your Social Enterprise idea
  • Preparing a Business Plan
  • Identifying & Accessing Funding to support your plan
  • Training, Events & Networking opportunities
  • Growing your Organisation

We can also help you access other specialist support and advice such as market research, intellectual  assets, human resources,  legal issues and much more.

For more information contact our Social Enterprise Development Officer Katrina MacPherson.

Social Enterprise Toolkit can be found here - this site provides more information about trading as a social enterprise .
