Social Enterprise and the Law

About this training session

Now more than ever, community and not-for-profit organisations are recognising the important role they can play in responding to social issues, as well as the opportunities this creates for their own financial sustainability.

You'll learn about:

  • What it means to be a social enterprise
  • Five key considerations when starting up
