The British Council is calling for applications from UK social enterprise support organisations able to provide consultancy services to social enterprises overseas.
These support services are being offered through a new strand of our Global Social Enterprise programme called the Business and Investment Readiness (BiR) programme that will be piloted in nine countries in the financial year ending on 31 March 2016 with a view to expanding in future.
This new initiative is designed to enhance the quality of support services for social enterprises and create opportunities for UK social enterprise intermediary organisations to enter foreign markets and expand their overseas networks.
It will do this by matching selected UK social enterprise support organisations with counterparts in participating countries. Working together, they will provide consultancy services to social enterprises in those countries in order to help them to strengthen their organisational capacity, better measure and communicate their impact, and successfully bid for grant and investment funding.
