The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
Hosted by Senscot, Social Firms Scotland, Scottish Community Alliance, Community Enterprise
Join us for this one-day event in Edinburgh exploring the role of community enterprises in Scotland. Small but highly effective community run enterprises are the bedrock of our sector and keynote speakers from Italy and England will offer perspectives on how our community businesses can stay local, but still make a big impact. Their particular focus will be on community enterprises working together and how, in doing so, they can deliver local services more effectively. The day will also include some great examples of community enterprise from around the country and we will also have Lesley Riddoch hosting a question time session at the end of the day.
