On Friday 27th April Newman University’s Enterprise team will be attending the flagship social enterprise event and celebration of Birmingham as a Social Enterprise City.

The event is part of a week long programme run by iSE, the social enterprise experts who aim to provide development opportunities for social enterprises, community organisations and not for profits in Birmingham and beyond. The event, named City Drive will showcase the social enterprises which exist within Birmingham and aims to raise awareness, create market opportunities, promote volunteering opportunities, work experience and employment within the sector.

City Drive has 5 calls to action: buy from a Social Enterprise; start a social enterprise; work in a social enterprise; volunteer in a social enterprise; and invest in a social enterprise.

Kevin Griffiths, Enterprise and Employer Engagement Manager at Newman University commented “Birmingham has more social enterprises than any other UK city outside of London.  Here at Newman we recognise the value of this sector and actively seek to partner with and support new, established and aspirant enterprises. Our expertise in the field makes us the partner of choice for a growing number of social enterprises.  We are proud of our contribution to the success of the sector.”

Newman will be promoting our services as a working partner and provider of consultancy services at our stall on the day.

The event is open to anyone with an interest in this sector and will take place at The Council House in Birmingham between 10:30am and 12:30pm.
