When:

Social Enterprise Kent offers a selection of training courses to charities and VCSE organisations in Kent. Current courses include:

Digital Leaders
Digital Leaders is a programme for CEOs, senior managers, trustees or directors of charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations to help the VCSE sector keep up with the private sector when it comes to IT solutions.

Grant Fundraising
In a climate with ever decreasing budgets, schools and VCSE organisations need to think more creatively about alternative sources of income. However, writing funding applications can seem a bit daunting to those who are not used to it.

Theory of Change Workshop
Increasing numbers of VCSE organisations are using Theories of Change and even more funders are asking to see them. But what is a theory of change, and why is it important? Learn why we use a theory of change, how to create one, how to use one for strategy and evaluation.

Setting up & Growing a Social Enterprise
It can be daunting starting a social enterprise. We will take you through the essentials, from business plans to bid writing and legal structures to partnerships. We will try to impart knowledge that we have learned over the years of running our own successful social enterprises.

Measuring Social Impact
As well as making your organisation more attractive to funders, being able to measure social impact will enable you to measure the effectiveness of your organisation, benchmark with your competition and allow you to see where improvements can be made.

Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding offers a new and different way to get funding into your charity or social enterprise. It’s also a great way of exciting your existing supporter base and attract new donors. However, it can be difficult and time-consuming. Do you have the tools to make it successful? Planning is key, and there are a lot of other tips that we will give you to run your crowdfunding campaign.
