After successfully running five events for its members covering all aspects of social enterprise, Bath Social Impact Network (BSIN) is launching a brand-new Social Investment Program.

The launch takes place on the 19 September at Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook Campus and involves a series of informational talks from local organisations including Good Finance, Cool Ventures, and Stone King LLC. Attendees will also hear about upcoming funding opportunities for their social enterprises and have the chance to network with like-minded individuals. 

BSIN is a partnership between Bath Spa University and 3SG, and is the first of its kind in Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES). The network aims to bring together groups and individuals specifically from social enterprises with a shared purpose of improving and growing the social economy in B&NES.

Improving Bath's social economy

Created with social enterprises at the heart, along with B Corps, CICs, co-ops, and those interested in the work of these types of organisations, the Bath Social Impact Network provides the support its members need to flourish through collaboration and idea generation.

Members also have the opportunity to attend networking events, forge new business relationships, find out about external funding, and gain access to specialised training sessions and workshops.

Bath Spa University has been nominated for two UK Social Enterprise Awards, beating more than 400 entries to make the shortlist for the UK Social Enterprise of the Year and the Community-Based Social Enterprise Award.

Bath Spa is one of more than 100,000 social enterprises in the UK and is being recognised for a number of projects and initiatives including its Skills Bootcamps, partnership with Youth Connect South West, Forest of Imagination and the launch of the Bath Social Impact Network (BSIN).
