Business group to help Scottish social enterprises
Scottish Business in the Community has launched an initiative to help social enterprises benefit from the business expertise of its member companies.
“Evolve presents fresh and exciting opportunities,” said James Tindell, programme manager at Scottish Business in the Community. “As well as skill-sharing, it is about changing perceptions on both sides, helping social enterprise to develop in the commercial world and challenging businesses to think about the social impact of their commercial activities.”
Moyra Gordon of CraigOwl Communities, a social exclusion charity in Dundee, said the organisation benefited from a skill-sharing workshop with Halifax Bank of Scotland volunteers.
“It was an excellent medium for interchanging ideas,” she said. “The team I worked with were so enthusiastic about their task, it made it easy for me to ask the right questions and get information that not only helped me, but informed our future strategy. I would not hesitate to recommend the programme to future volunteers or participant organisations.”
