Three Things for Thursday – 18th February 2021

Hi folks – well I am back after a week spent painting (not art I’m afraid, just my kitchen and bathroom) and return to good news of a further £285k funding from WLC for the Third Sector. No details yet but will keep you posted if I hear anything!

1/ Member Benefits – with no take up for our free counselling support for social enterprise leaders, we are widening it out to your senior staff – link here. In addition, if you would like to take advantage of 2 free sessions of business coaching, please contact me.

2/ Retail Academy – if retail is your thing or would like it to be moving forward, then Social Investment Scotland (SIS) is welcoming applications for their 5 day “Retail Academy” – apply here by the 11th March.
