It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
Employability Social Enterprise Network (SEN) session as part of P4P Collaboration Week: Collaboration in Employability
This Employability SEN session features Glasgow Empowering Community Cooperative - GECCO - a co-operative of Development Trusts across Glasgow city aiming to provide local solutions to city-wide challenges, to address inequalities and disadvantage.
As community-based organisations with a focus on their local area, by collaborating GECCO are able to access tender and contract opportunities that would be beyond scope of each individual organisation.
Pauline Smith from Connect Community Trust will explain how and why GECCO was formed, the key building blocks to collaboration, the challenges and opportunities and the difference collaborations has made - including their successful bids for DWP and ESF contracts.
