Setting-up Your Social Business

This course is part of the Develop and Grow Your Social Business Project

In partnership with Kensington & Chelsea Social Council, Portobello Business Centre will provide specialist training which helps residents and fledgling organisations to identify the different types of legal structures available to them, such as setting-up as a self-employed person working in partnership with other services, or creating a charity or CIC themselves.

The course is open to any resident / organisation based in Kensington and Chelsea; however, priority will be given to those who have applied to and/or have been awarded Grenfell Projects Funding or Community Leadership Programme funding.

Please ensure you attend all sessions below to make the most of this online workshop.
