Join New Anglia Social Investment Partnership and Good Finance for this free session for an overview of social investment and governance.

This event is for charities, social enterprises and community businesses who would like to learn more about social investment and governance, and how to bring your board on the journey with you.

Trustees have an enormous responsibility to look at what's best for your organisation and what works for one may not work for another.

Social Investment could hold a myriad of opportunities and possibilities for your organisation, leading to increased support and social impact for your beneficiaries and communities - but you need to be able to understand and access these.
