This free webinar is aimed at commissioners from local public authorities, as well as leaders of social enterprises and other public benefit organisations, who want to explore new and more impactful ways of organising public services.

The event will explore how social investment can support local public authorities’ work with social enterprises to improve services. Drawing on case studies from Kirklees and Rotherham, and with input from our expert panel, participants will be able to explore how social investment can make a difference to the way services are organised, bringing new resources and supporting transformation.
