Coming to a region near you - NOMS regional tour

Thursday 12th May 2011 - Wednesday 22nd June 2011
Organiser: NOMS

 In conjunction with Concilium and the regional social enterprise networks NOMS are organising a series of events designed to encourage and facilitate dialogue between NOMS and the sector.

Each event will aim to produce a clear action plan that will seek to ensure that social enterprise has a strong voice within NOMS and a clear way in which to engage.

NOMS want to encourage as much participation as possible from the sector and see this as just the start. We want diversity in size, focus and history – even if you are a new and developing enterprise, please get involved.
