Why not visit a Social Firm in action? Social Firms UK has set up "The Visit Programme" to enable you to do just this. The programme:
- facilitates visits to Social Firms and Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) that are successfully using this business model in different markets to employ and support severely disadvantaged people
- enables Social Firms and WISES to learn from each other
- helps other interested parties to understand how social enterprises operate
- is supported by strategic partnership funding from the Cabinet Office, Office of the Third Sector.
How the programme works
The Visit Programme offers you a simple way to identify an appropriate enterprise according to your interests, and for setting up the visit. Its website (www.visitsocialenterprise.co.uk) tells you where you can visit, how to book, and what to expect from the experience.
