SIS team up with CEMVO & CEMVO Enterprises CIC to deliver two workshops

We are delighted to be teaming up with CEMVO and CEMVO Enterprises CIC to deliver two online workshops for social enterprises on Accessing Social Investment Finance on May 24th & 26th.


Join us for an interactive workshop where we will introduce the concept of social investment and launch a part grant and part loan funding package that ethnic minority (EM) social enterprises can apply for, and which will help provide a taster for EM social enterprises/groups in accessing social investment. A limited number of EM social enterprises/groups will be able to apply for between £1,000 – £5,000 through this taster funding stream.

The sessions will cover:

  • The basics of social investment – what it is and how it works
  • The social investment funders in Scotland – who provides social investment and for what
  • How to access SIS mixed grant and loan taster funding through support from CEMVO Scotland.

We will be joined by a guest speaker who will share their experience of accessing social investment and explain how it has helped them generate greater impact in their communities.

Slides will be made available after the workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!
