I have been collaborating with Big Society Capital and a number of local stakeholders to organise an event on the topic of Social Investment.
As we know, this is a topic of increasing significance and an opportunity for many charities and Social Enterprises to access forms of finance other than diminishing grant funding.
That said, it’s not appropriate for many organisations, but the problem is the lack of understanding of what it is, the various forms, how it works and of course, whether it’s appropriate.
So I am really pleased to tell you that this event will be held on the morning of Tuesday 17th April at Blake Morgan, Botley.
Speakers are just being finalised, but we are hoping these will include Big Society Capital, Big Issue Invest, Unity Trust and a local organisation that can share their experience of taking up Social Investment.
More information can be found here on the Eventbrite Page, where you can also register: http://bit.ly/LTGF_Oxford
It will be updated as the speakers are confirmed – Places are limited and we expect this to fill up quickly, so please secure your place and also spread the word across your networks.
Thanks and regards
