Launch will unlock benefit for citys progression

Liverpool’s “untapped” wealth of “goodwill and talent” will be given a boost as a new school for social entrepreneurs is launched today.

The new Liverpool School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) will be unveiled as a further addition to the burgeoning network of such schools across the UK. It is supported by Liverpool City Council and will work in partnership with local agencies.

Mike Taylor, Chief Executive of BusinessLiverpool said: “The School for Social Entrepreneurs” network of local schools and its national fellowship is delivering social benefit and spreading well-being throughout the country. We”re very pleased that it has chosen Liverpool as its next partner community”.

The launch will be held at the “renowned” social enterprise “Blackburne House” between 2pm and 3pm, with speakers including Councillor Flo Clucas, executive member for economic development and Europe.

“We believe that there is a wealth of talent and goodwill lying untapped in Liverpool, which social entrepreneurship can unlock for the benefit of all”, Mr Taylor continued.

“This new partnership is another example of the public and social enterprise sectors combining in innovative ways to change the city for the better while creating new jobs and local wealth”.

And Cllr Clucas was equally effusive about the launch: “What we are trying to do with the launch of the School for Social Entrepreneurs is to create access to mentoring and training, so people can create true social businesses”.

“This will only add to the economic potential of each of these areas. We look forward to our new SSE to invigorate communities, build capacity in the sector and create a new generation of social entrepreneurs who will change the face of their neighbourhoods for good”, he added.
