Welcome to our 2nd social enterprise forum for 2017. As well as an opportunity to reconnect with fellow social entrepreneurs and discuss the scope and focus of your projects, we have the privilege of having Alex Hannant – CEO of Akina Foundation (http://akina.org.nz/)
‘Strengthening social and economic development through social enterprise’
Around the world and in New Zealand, social enterprise is a becoming an increasingly popular approach to support local development and address social and environment problems.
By combining social and commercial approaches, the social enterprise model appeals to business-minded entrepreneurs wanting to achieve social good, and to community organisations seeking independence and financial sustainability.
Alex will introduce the practicalities of how social enterprises work, and layout the strategic context for how they can be supported. His talk will cover:
– Social enterprise models and approaches
– Relevance to community resilience and local economic development
– Developmental challenges and enablers
– New Zealand data points and sector developments
– Potential opportunities and strategies for local government and other partners

SASH-Nelson is on the move to new premises

From next Monday, 1st May we will be located at 16 Nile Street (right beside INP – Independent Nursing Practice) which will complement our service perfectly.

Leaving the Women’s Centre was not an easy decision to make, however the synergy we will have with INP will be amazing, as well as the additional opportunities this move will provide. It also means that we will have a little more office space which will be greatly appreciated, as with the growth we have been experiencing in client numbers we have definitely outgrown our current office.

New details :

Street Address : 16 Nile Street, Nelson 7010
Manager Cell Phone : 022 548 2407

All other contact details will remain the same :

Postal Address : PO Box 830, Nelson 7040
Phone : (03) 548 2407
