The northern stretch of the Yorkshire Coast (and about thirty miles inland) has been recognised by Social Enterprise UK as the Yorkshire Coast Social Enterprise Zone, that is an area where social enterprise is thriving and where key stakeholders are working together to develop the social enterprise sector.       

If you are doing something interesting, useful or fun for the local community but you don't know if this means you are, or could be, a "social enterprise" just talk to us and we'll help you work out where you fit.

Social Enterprise is a subject that's heavy on jargon and misconceptions.  We don't think it should be so we do our best to cut through the jargon and bust some myths as we go along.  We focus on what it is you are trying to do and how best we can help you to do it.

Does that sound like the kind of support you need?

Claire's month in local Social Enterprise

In Bridlington and the surrounding Community Led Local Development area I am continuing to see new clients together with some existing clients with their on-going projects.  What a pleasure it is to support people with some fantastic ideas and also help existing enterprises to pull together their projects.  This month, I have also enjoyed my first Learning and Skills Forum and my first Bridlington Health Forum. 

I was delighted to support The Social Enterprise Fayre at Hull Minster on 3 April which recorded 575 people attending.  At the event, we had a variety of stalls showcasing their products and services such as Autism Plus selling their delicious chocolate; Mires Beck Nursery selling their plants; Men in Sheds selling their recycled furniture and Timebank launching new services.  From the Evaluation Forms completed on the day by the City of Culture volunteers we received lots of positive comments such as how friendly everyone was; a feeling of community and the variety of stalls.
