Carrick centre hosts workshops

THE Carrick Centre in Maybole is hosting six half-day social enterprise workshops on Directors Training. Workshop Facilitator will be Karen Herbert of Real Work Skills and each half day workshop will consist of three hours on March 20, April 3 and 17, May 1, 15 and 29.

Each workshop will start at 1.30pm and cover finance (for non-accountants), business plans, policies and procedures, legal structures, marketing and use of technology.

The workshops will broadly follow the standard workshops delivered by VASA for social enterprise and will be delivered with specific reference to the actual needs of the Carrick Centre. In addition to the workshop delivery, each participant will receive a copy of the Social Enterprise Manual which underpins the standard workshops.

Up to 12 participants will be involved in the workshops, six for the Carrick Centre, and six from other organisations. The workshops are free and more information can be obtained from Alan Murray on 07807450324, or email
