Join us on 5th June at Northfield Hall in Huddersfield for a breakfast network meeting following up on the Growing Social Enterprise in Kirklees Conference that we held in March.

In particular, we’ll be looking at and providing information on the support that’s available locally and nationally, including details from the network partners about the the support, services and events they can offer. Plus, we’ll be discussing further the issues around how we describe ourselves, and we’ve asked Adam Waterman from Eden’s Forest to tell us more about why he thinks that ‘more than profit’ is an appropriate term.
Refreshments will be provided.
