Independent Network of Redcar & Cleveland Social Enterprises

Virtual Network Gathering

10am – 11.30am, Wednesday, 20 October 2021


The past year has been a tough one for businesses. For most, sales decreased and growth has not happened as quickly as projected.

Connect and network with social enterprises at different growth stages to:

  • share the positives and challenges of the pandemic so far
  • share and/or pick up innovative ideas
  • build new connections to collaborate for growth
  • learn about new opportunities, including LARCH*

*Local Access Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool (LARCH) is a partnership programme between Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool. LARCH aims to assist with the long-term sustainability and resilience of charities and social enterprises through a range of support measures and blended finance in form of grants, loans and in-kind support.
