Corporate Membership

 

Why should a Private or Public Sector organisation join as a member of Social Enterprise NI?

Social Enterprise NI can help businesses and organisations connect with social enterprises, to help them develop programmes to support the social enterprise sector or by advising them on how to get more social enterprises into their supply chains.  More and more as a private or public sector organisation you will be hearing of social enterprises.  If not already, you will be hearing of social value, social impact and its measurement as NI looks to come in line with other parts of the UK by introducing government guidance on the inclusion of social value in procurement.

Don’t miss out!  Social Enterprise NI already work with organisations such as PwC, Edwards and Co Solicitors, Lockton Insurance, Hays Recruitment as well as all 11 local councils and can provide you with introductions to our members as you look to “buy social”. Companies such as Farrans Construction, Leaf and recently Idverde have joined as members and have recognised the value of getting to understand the sector.  Why not join them as a Corporate Member?  

Perhaps you can offer support to the sector? Can you provide support (non-financial) on using the skill sets of your staff and provide them with the window to “give back” to organisations, some of which will be looking for support for their Finance, Marketing, Media and much more.
