Funding for vulnerable communities focus for Trust
Initiatives supporting vulnerable communities were a driver in several of the applications for funding.
The Social Enterprise World Forum 2017 (27-29 September) offered three days of mesmerising content, 50+ sessions, workshops and overall was a frenetic and mesmerising affair of information, insights and debate that really packed a punch.
The Otago Community Trust was delighted to have provided funding assistance to 15 Otago not for profit organisations currently involved with or thinking about establishing a social enterprise venture to attend the 2017 Forum.
Following on from this we are pleased to be working with Community Builders and The Valley Project to provide a one day workshop for community people to explore community innovation, assets, enterprise and capacity building through relationship.
