‘Exchange’ event organisers announce social enterprise supply chain
The Social Enterprise Exchange, which is taking place in Glasgow on 27 March, is working with more than 15 social enterprise suppliers. The event’s organisers – Social Enterprise UK, Social Enterprise Scotland and CEIS Events – are aiming for 80% of the event’s supply chain to be made up of social enterprises.
Entertainment on the day is going to be provided by The Walking Theatre Company and Drumatik – an inclusive community drumming group from West Fife that works with people with learning disabilities.
Delegate bags are being supplied by SoFair (www.sofair.org.uk). This social enterprise works in partnership with Vandanamu Ethical Cotton (VEC), an employer of local women who were affected by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. Women are paid fair wages and have good working conditions.
Behind the scenes professional pictures will be taken by Becky Duncan Photography (www.beckyduncanphotography.co.uk), which puts its profits into Open Aye, a provider of photography workshops for hard to reach groups in Scotland. The team behind the cameras filming will from the Wise Group, one of Scotland’s most well know social enterprises (www.thewisegroup.co.uk).
Peter Holbrook, Chief Executive of Social Enterprise UK, said: “We’re really pleased to be buying products and services from so many social enterprises in Scotland – all doing great work. They’re proof that business can be a force for good in our society.”
