pounds 500k social enterprise boost; SUSTAINABLE.
A social networking website, peer-topeer mentoring, procurement training, enterprise readiness and knowledge exchange initiatives will go ahead, benefiting hundreds of businesses and voluntary sector organisations across the region.
The announcement comes after months of activity led by Social Enterprise West Midlands (SEWM) and the funding further signals government commitment for social enterprises.
SEWM network director Kevin Maton said: "We are extremely pleased with the decision because all the projects will be addressing gaps in provision identified by our members and delivered by organisations with a track record in supporting the sector including UnLtd World, iSE, brap and More than Outputs.
"We will also be delivering one of the projects - a knowledge exchange programme to identify and share good practice."
The integrated package of projects will be officially launched in the New Year.
