WVSC is hosting a number of workshops over the next month, please find details of these below:
Social Enterprise Wolverhampton SEW Jam
Wed, 20 November / 10:30 – 12:30
We have had 12 months of running Social Enterprise Wolverhampton (SEW) and there have been a couple of suggestions for continuing to support Wolverhampton social enterprises going forward, as follows:
- CIC Network and Directory : set up a CIC Network and Directory with CIC information in one place
- Social Enterprise News: have a slot/page dedicated to Social Enterprise News within WVSC’s fortnightly electronic Newsletter
- CIC Quarterly Meetings: facilitated meetings where CICs can come together to share learning, ideas, information, best practice and more.
If you are interested in discussing the above then this meeting is for you. A light lunch will be provided.
Climate Action Fund Workshop
Wed, 27 November / 18:00 – 19:15
The National Lottery Community Fund has launched a new £100 million Climate Action Fund to help community groups take the lead in tackling the climate emergency.
This event will provide assistance for any community groups that are interested in applying for this funding. There will be a presentation on the details of the fund covering amount, eligibility, applications process, etc… This will be followed by best practice training on writing funding bids from one of the Council’s own funding officers. Finally, the session will end with a brainstorming/ writing session to help both with creating and refining potential ideas for tackling climate change in the city.
Procurement and Tendering Process Workshop City of Wolverhampton Council
Tue, 3 December / 10:00 – 12:30
The session will cover how the system and process works and what you need to know to be procurement ready particularly, for example:
- Specification and Evaluation Criteria
- Key questions and Standards
- Price and Timeline
The workshop will be delivered by Alastair Jewson, Procurement Manager, City of Wolverhampton Council.
If there are any specific topics, hot issues, information etc. that you would be interested in hearing about, the workshop can be tailored to meet these requirements.
