Local work Social Enterprise UK in the West Midlands West Midlands Events We run, partner and support a wide range of events. See below for examples of recent and upcoming events. 8 June 2017 - Let’s Talk Good Finance, Birmingham Social investment is often seen as a London-centric activity. It can be harder for charities and social enterprises outside of the capital to access social investors and gain a better understanding of the financial products available. This event will delve into the social investment landscape giving you the chance to speak to charity and social enterprise leaders who have already accessed social investment, meet investors and see whether social investment is right for your organisation. 3 July - PwC/SEUK West Midlands Networking Event We are partnering with PWC to host an evening of drinks, canapes and business networking! Connect with key members of the social enterprise community to share ideas and explore opportunities. During the event they'll be a topical discussion with key speakers on Social Mobility. 13 September - Hospice UK/Social Enterprise UK West Midlands health event - Beacon Centre, Wolverhampton. Further details to follow. Interested in other regions?
