This one-day, interactive event will explore how to grow social enterprise and co-operative models for public services, improve outcomes and meet challenges for the future.

It will explore how successful social enterprise and co-operative models can be scaled, a subject of particular importance given the context of the new Procurement Act coming into force in October 2024, as well as the pending general election.

The event will bring together the experience of innovative social enterprise leaders, bold commissioners responsible for public services, and funders and social investors. Topics to be included in the day’s presentations and discussions are children’s services, elderly care, mental health, and domestic violence.

E3M Imagine will take place on 16 July 2024 from 9am until 4:30pm at the People’s History Museum, Manchester. To find out more about what promises to be an engaging and compelling event and to register your interest, head to the E3M website.
