The 'SEASON' project is led by Co-operatives South East and in collaboration with ESSEN and the se² partnership.
'SEASON' is funded by Capacitybuilders and seeks to improve support for social enterprises in the South East through the creation, establishment and development of a regional network for social enterprise advisers. The network will be driven forwards by the social enterprise advisers, who will access the network to attend regular meetings where best practice is shared, hot topics are addressed and continual professional development is achieved.
The 'SEASON' project seeks to:
- Build a strong regional network encouraging engagement from relevant (i.e. people working in the South East region whose primary role is to provide direct business support and advice to social enterprises) advisers, including those not accredited and Business Link advisers
- Build a better standard of advice available to the region's social enterprises through increased accreditation and the sharing of best practice models
- Build greater awareness of, and improved access to, good quality social enterprise advice for third sector organisations in the region
The 'SEASON' network will be membership driven and if you are an individual who is practising as a social enterprise adviser, or are undertaking formal training to become a social enterprise adviser in the South East region, then you can be a member.
