There are over 200 Social Enterprises and Community Businesses in Plymouth, who collectively employ over 9,000 people in the local area. As a result, this has a positive impact on the city; not only does it give individuals jobs within a meaningful sector, but it also means that these businesses can continue to grow and develop.
Now, 10 new organisations have joined the RISE Match Trading Programme, taking the total to 19 participants. The new group will have the opportunity to get together with the original 9 organisations throughout the year to share their experiences as well as looking at opportunities to collaborate with one another.
The Future is Social event was a great environment for like-minded individuals to get together and share ideas, celebrate achievements, and simply cheer each other on.
An exciting year lies ahead, and we can’t wait to see all the great things these organisations continue to do in the city.
