The Partnership has been working with Social Enterprise Network, our equivalent organisation in Liverpool to pull together a knowledge exchange visit to some of the city’s thriving social enterprises. The visit will be a great opportunity to talk to individuals involved in some of Liverpool’s most inspiring social enterprises – sharing learning, experiences and ideas over a packed two days.
The visit has been organised to coincide with the monthly ‘Liverpool SOUP’ where entrepreneurs pitch to the audience; a combination of networking and crowd funding -and also includes visits to a range of social enterprises operating in retail, social care, health and wellbeing and the creative and digital sector as well as the opportunity to talk to those influencing the direction of social enterprise in the area.

In addition to this, delegates will take part in reflective and feedback sessions during the visit and afterwards in Cumbria. These sessions will be designed to ensure the attendees get the most from their visit and to identify priorities for the sector in Cumbria.
The visit will take place on Thursday and Friday, 24th/25th September and includes accommodation and all meals. The visit will be facilitated by Social Enterprise Network and is subsidised by Cumbria Social Enterprise Partnership enabling costs to be kept to a minimum.
We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £100 per person. We think this is really good value considering the number of organisations and opportunities available over the visit, but if this is a barrier to you being able to attend, please get in touch to discuss.
As places are limited, an early response is recommended and we would be grateful if you could confirm your interest to Sue Gilbertson, email@example.com by Monday, 14th September.
