Social Firms UK and Europe Conference 2010 Events > Social Firms UK and Europe Conference 2010
01/07/10
The 2010 annual Social Firms UK and Europe conference is taking place on July 1st and 2nd at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge.

This conference is relevant for social enterprises, for people working in the Social Firm sector (or interested in partnering with or starting a Social Firm) and also for service providers - people and organisations that seek to make a difference to those furthest away from the labour market.

The conference programme is attached which gives details of the keynote sessions, workshops and costs.

This conference is about working together; using the power of business and enterprise to change lives. Over the last few years the Social Firm and social enterprise sectors have been growing both in size and relevance to today’s society. Now is the time to embark upon partnerships that will help realise our ambitions for people who are furthest from the labour market and for the businesses in which they work. Our external-facing conference will have both a UK and a European dimension. Join us to celebrate and debate the power and potential of business to create jobs for those people who are amongst the most disadvantaged in our society.

2010 is the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion and our conference is one of the events being supported. We have set up a bursary scheme so that people from across the UK and Europe, whose own lives have been affected by poverty and social exclusion, can participate and share their stories about overcoming these barriers. These experiences will add a real impetus and a new dimension to discussions about how business can, and should, be used to change peoples’ lives.

Harnessing the power of business to change lives sounds great. Together we can do it – be there!
