Please complete the survey by 31st July to help us support & grow social enterprise in Kirklees
Third Sector Leaders Kirklees and Kirklees Council are supporting researchers from Leeds Beckett University with a study to explore the scale of Social Enterprise Activity (SEA) across the Region. This is part of our work to support and grow social enterprise with new initiatives such as the new More Than Profit network.
Instigated by West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA), the research aims to:
Establish the scale and scope of the activity/sector
Examine the challenges that organisations undertaking SEA face
Identify gaps in the infrastructure supporting organisations delivering SEA
Formulate some practical policy options to support the development of the sector
For the study we would like to receive input from a wide
range of organisations, including both those which classify themselves as
Social Enterprises, and those that have a wider remit but undertake Social
Enterprise Activities as part of their operation (SEA is defined as trading /
selling goods or services which also fulfil a social mission). To take part in
the research you will need to complete this online survey.
The survey should take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Participation is voluntary and any information given will remain totally
confidential and will only be used by researchers and stakeholders involved in
the project. The findings from the research will be published in a report; however,
the data from the survey will be presented in aggregate form only, so neither
you nor your organisation will be identifiable from the results.
If you feel you are not the most appropriate person to
respond on behalf of your organisation, please forward this email to a
colleague (however we only need one response from each organisation.) If you
would prefer to complete a paper copy of the questionnaire or would prefer to
respond over the telephone then please contact the Survey Centre on the number
below. Please note the final submission date is Wednesday, 31st
The project is funded by Higher Education Innovation Funding
and is a partnership between Leeds Beckett University and WYCA. Advice and
oversight is provided by the School for Social Entrepreneurs Yorkshire and the
North East and Social Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber (SEYH). The research has
been reviewed and approved under LBU’s research ethics process. If you have any
questions about the study please contact Penny Wymer on 0113 8121960 or email@example.com If you
have any technical issues, or queries about how to complete the questionnaire,
please contact the Survey Research Centre on (0113) 812 1960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to receiving your response in due course.

Year 3 Report on Their Work to Support People in Disadvantaged Areas to Create Community Activities
Attached is some
information regarding the Community Activators Scheme which is a project funded
by the Big Lottery (started Feb 2016) and delivered by Communities United
Project (CUP). It is a 4 year project which helps people in Kirklees to step up
and create activities for young people.
and young people’s services have been hit by cuts, so what can we do?
The answers vary from
community to community but here at CUP we support people in disadvantaged areas
to create great community activities.
Our work develops strengths, builds skills and
opens up routes to training and qualifications.
We create change. It starts with community activities and ends with stronger, more resilient individuals and groups.
