The Engine Room is very excited for this month’s ‘Make it Happen – for the Health and Wellbeing of our Communities‘ – a free event for social enterprises in the health and wellbeing sector.
- Are you seeing a need for activities that currently aren’t available?
- Are you passionate about solving social problems to create a fairer world; one that works for everyone?
- Are you interested in meeting and finding out more about how social enterprises are providing solutions in this area?
- Are you interested in getting something started yourself?
- How good would it feel to make a difference every day?
We want people with brilliant ideas that seriously make a difference, and we’re bringing you some of our favourite social enterprise rock stars, working within the world of health and wellbeing!
Come along to this event to find out more: brought to you by RIO in partnership with Resonance and the South West Academic Health and Science Network.
This event will be split into two parts (please book onto the part that most suits you) with a networking session joining the two parts for everyone to come together, make connections, and continue to be inspired.
Part 1: 2:00pm – 4.30pm
Who’s it for?
Do you have an idea? Have you started a project, initiative or business which is delivering services in your community? Then join us for interactive session with other like-minded people and inspirational businesses to meet, explore and discover what’s happening in key areas of the health and wellbeing sector. This session will be focusing on four key themes:
- Housing/supporting communities
- Health, nutrition and food
- Care and social care
- Supporting people with multiple and complex needs
We have invited established projects and businesses along with supporters and funders of these enterprises who will be there to talk through their side of their journey, answer questions and share the challenges and success. Attendees will be able to join more than one of these themes within this session.
Networking (with tea with cake of course!): 4.30 – 5.30pm
Peter Holbrook, CEO of Social Enterprise UK will be joining us to share inspirational examples of how social enterprises are providing solutions within the health and wellbeing sector and beyond.
