Gainsborough Alchemy Highlights

Gainsborough Alchemy Case Study

E3M Alchemy Gainsborough brought together over 70 participants over two days in July 2019. They explored ideas which could harness the power of social enterprise and social investment to help tackle some key challenges.

Participants sought to complement the extensive work which has already taken place and is ongoing in support of Gainsborough’s bid to The Local Access programme.

E3M Alchemy events are catalysts for change. They involve insights and application from impactful, sustainable and mature social enterprises. They promote the reformation of community relationships and public institutions and the integration of local services, facilities, businesses and stakeholders.

We convened Gainsborough Alchemy to bring new perspectives to the challenges, defining outcomes, developing ideas for new models for social enterprise scale and partnership, exploring financial options, partnerships, co-design and collaborations.

We shared knowledge about the “art of the possible” with real, successful examples of innovation in partnership approaches to commissioning and procurement, social investment and collaborative service delivery from across the UK.

The event demonstrated the transformative potential of West Lindsey District Council and local stakeholders in working together, building on what is already there and what has already been done, to co-create sustainable social enterprise solutions to the challenges faced by the town. A number of key ideas were generated. The event also stimulated learning, knowledge sharing and new connections.
