23RD JANUARY 2018 – GREATER MANCHESTER SOCIAL INVESTMENT FUND coming to ROCHALE!
Do you have a great idea for a business with social impact?
Is your organisation already delivering social impact and you want to grow what you’re doing or expand in a new direction?
GM Social Investment has opportunities for affordable and accessible loan finance aimed at small and very small social enterprises (or businesses with social impact) and charities that trade. These loans are designed for smaller organisations – even those that are very new – who have the potential to add more value to their local communities and grow their social impact.
Rochdale Borough Social Enterprise and Co-operative Forum we will be holding an event prior to its AGM on the 23rd January (FLIER BELOW).
The Event will start at 5.30pm and last until 7pm. It will be informal and allow plenty of networking.
One of the Forum’s members, Cartwheel Arts was recently in the first party of 3 organisations to benefit with a £40,000 loan plus £10,000 grant and will be there to talk about the experience!
The event is open to members and any other interested parties.

- Increasing production
- Growing your customer base
- Improving marketing
