DO YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED?

We are working with press and media and have already secured an extensive article in next months’ In Business magazine, similar to this In Business article

As well as helping with new events you might like to plan, we simply want to know about any events or activities you have arranged for around that time. We will include them in our programme, which we will be circulating widely, list here, and also have them listed on the Social Enterprise UK website. We would also like to support organisations to coordinate joint events you might want to participate in or develop.

So, get in touch with us and be part of this exciting progamme to promote Social Enterprise across Oxfordshire – and beyond!

Our partners, Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, who are strong supporters of Social Enterprise, are also supporting this initiative.
