With all the talk of doom and gloom for the civil society sector, it’s nice to hear some good news. The Collective is a network of black & ethnic minority social businesses in the West Midlands, and we are happy to announce our celebration event.
The event celebrates our successes of the past 12 months, notably beginning with 30 organisations, but now 750+ signed up members, 10 of whom have raised £435,055 over the last couple of years.
We’ve even created a new website to showcase the work of the network, with case studies that champion our members’ success, guides and toolkits covering important business topics and an events page to keep you abreast of the current free training opportunities.
We’re looking to expand our relationship with commissioners, and increasing the numbers of organisations that affiliate to the network, such as funders, commissioners and strategic bodies.
So... this is more than a launch; it’s an opportunity to...
§ Take part in demonstrations of the new website
§ To get registered on the site so you can access the guides, toolkits and interact with other Collective members

§ See what else brap can do to support you
§ Network and meet your potential partners
§ And have lunch!
