CERT have been funded for a year to help develop the social economy in the Humber and surrounding area.
In order to get things moving CERT have proposed that they will need:
- Specific business support for start-up and established social enterprises
- Guidance for charities and V.C.S. organisations exploring trading as a route to sustainability
- A social enterprise network where people can get together and swap ideas and find out what’s happening in the social enterprise world
- Specialist training and workshops
- A resource library
They only have a year to make all of this successful and sustainable, and think that the only way that that is going to happen is if the network meets your specific needs.
CERT therefore would like to know what you would like to see the network deliver, what sort of training and workshop content you would like to see (and would really appreciate you sharing materials, case studies etc. with them so that they can develop the resource library into a really useful area for organisations in the area).
Finally they would welcome your thoughts on how they might sustain the network in the future.
As a result, they have put together a short survey (5 minutes max) to gather your views. Please have a look and answer as much as you feel able to – all opinions are important and even if you only want to comment on one area, that’s fine.
