iSE Initiative For Social Entrepreneurs
5th May 2016
iSE is a leading social enterprise and VCS development organisation with over 16 years experience of providing tailored consultancy services to the social sector.
We provide specialised client-centred support, helping organisations to facilitate and react to change so that they can deliver services better, develop and grow.
Our in-house and expert consultants can support with market analysis, feasibility, reaching new markets, income diversification and innovation, business planning, moving from grants-trade, legal structures/governance, consortia working, becoming tender ready, evaluations, social impact and value, and accessing social finance.
We run events and training to develop the sector and have a number of networks including the Digbeth Social Enterprise Quarter.
iSE has been supporting infrastructure organisations since 2004. Through our in-house staff team and expert associates we offer a unique range of skills and knowledge to increase both profit and positive impact. We have extensive experience of helping organisations to work collaboratively, develop bidding consortia, adapt to change, explore organisational structure and strategy, generate new income streams. Our expertise spans the social enterprise, charity, community and public sectors. We’ve worked with organisations with turnovers in excess of £10m but are equally happy working with smaller community groups. We have delivered ERDF and ESF programmes, and worked with Local Authorities, MOJ, consultancy to a range of organisations such as Midland Mencap, Bita Pathways, Midland Heart....
iSE works to support, develop and grow the social economy. We work to raise the profile of social enterprise locally, regionally and nationally and we grow and sustain social enterprises that create employment and provide benefit to some of our most disadvantaged communities.
