Hosting a number of events throughout the city we will provide opportunities for the sharing of ideas, developing knowledge, promotion of projects and a chance to extend your network.  

Some of our events will be community-led, such as Proaction Cafes, where structured facilitation is provided with the aim of helping people and projects develop their ideas.  

Other events will be curated around social innovation, with guest speakers and panellists invited to share their knowledge and experience with others.  We will also have regular socials where everyone can come together and get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting. 


In partnership with other organisations working in the field of social innovation, we host a number of training events focusing on skills, synergy and sustainability of projects and enterprises.  There is a mix of training workshops with some focused on specific areas of social innovation and community, whilst others will be more broad and available to a wider audience.

Keep an eye out for our schedule of activity on our Events page.  If you would like to request training around a specific topic or an event commissioned for a particular social issue, let us know via our Get In Touch page.
