Help Make Change Happen in Croydon

SEEK Social Enterprise Programme Roadshow

When:       17 January 2017   10:00am – 12:30pm

Where:     CRISIS Skylight Croydon, Unit 3 Bridge House, 13 Surrey Street, Croydon

Come along to CRISIS Skylight Croydon to find out how the SEEK Project supports people in Croydon and the Coast To Capital region who are not in work to set up new social enterprises and to gain the skills to move into employment.

Social Enterprises are businesses that trade to tackle social problems, strengthen communities or improve the environment. They aim to generate most of their income through selling goods and services, re-investing the majority of their profits to further their social mission.
