Hello from Together Works!
Together Works is a Social Enterprise membership and support network for Greater Manchester, operating in partnership with Social Enterprise North West. Our aim is to develop a thriving social economy across the region supporting and enabling our members in their enterprising and cooperative endeavours. We are run by social enterprises, for social enterprises.
We are currently working towards three main functions that were assessed in an survey of our members that, amongst many things, identified the opportunities and challenges facing Social Enterprises in Great Manchester this year.
Throughout 2013, join Together Works as we:
- Provide Social Enterprise relevant news and information in areas surrounding funding and social investment, alongside social enterprise networking, public and private sector organisations as well as with individuals working in the same specific market areas as our members.
- Together Works aims to take lead on the promotion of Greater Manchester’s Social Enterprise Sector, and providing a Social Enterprise Sector ‘think-tank’ role for the city-region.
- Together Works also aims to provide practical sector-specific support and training such as on impact and social value reporting, income generation strategy, product development and marketing & communication.
We will also continue to:
- Build up membership
- Develop service offer to deliver the best for our members
- Develop our business support offer through a combination of start up support and social finance
- Host networking events and development programmes
This summer of 2013 Together Works is looking forward to programming an exciting series of opportunities for our members and associates.
We have launched an invigorating Social Investment Readiness Programme, aimed at supporting Third Sector organisations to improve their Social Investment potential; and we are also running our Supporting Community Initiatives Programme (SCIP), for organisations whose funding models need to change following cutbacks or organistions with a business proposal that needs to get off the ground.
