Social Startup Portsmouth

Social Startup Tool Kit and workshop programme

A free Social Startup Toolkit and a series of free programmes has been developed; taking you through step-by-step to develop your idea and launch your own Social Startup. 

The Social Enterprise support is offered through a free programme which aims to inspire you and support you through a range of practical tools including a specific social enterprise toolkit, resources, mentoring, networking activities. 

The programme of workshops run over 4 weeks to help you look at how your thoughts can be put into action. The workshops are fully funded (free) and open to all members of the public. I want to find out more about the free workshops.

The partners have come together to help make a change and increase peoples awareness of Social Enterprise and increase the amount of Social Startups across the city. Many people want to make an impact in the community but are often unsure how.
