Business Advice Network (BAN)
The BAN provides learning and networking opportunities for those providing business support to social enterprises and community groups. The network involves those who advise social enterprises in South West England, including: generic business advisors (not working specifically with social enterprises), specialist advisors, thematic advisors including finance, development workers and some key funders who offer advice on funding applications.
BAN events have proved to be very popular - themes covered to date include opportunities for social enterprises in the health and care sector; the new Community Interest Company (CIC) structure, social accounting, and asset base development. to receive email alerts about the network or see our Events
