Supporting Enterprise

Our role is to support existing, emerging and aspiring organisations to become, and remain, sustainable businesses that fulfil a social purpose. It’s also about identifying and nurturing future potential, particularly amongst social economy organisations that see trading as part of their growth strategy.

CEiS offers specialist support to third sector organisations to develop sustainable projects; build capacity and knowledge and facilitate community engagement. We do this by supporting project development; project planning; feasibility studies; project briefs; comprehensive business plans; financial planning; marketing and funding applications.

Our Business Advisers have a wide range of experience working with the third sector and our role involves a participative process to allow organisations to develop their business proposals. Our Advisers work with the organisation using group development sessions, usually with a mixture of board and staff members.
