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

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

A series of events are also created around social innovation activities, with guest speakers and panellists sharing their knowledge and experiences with people across Leicester.  We also have regular Changemaker 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 enterprise and innovation, we host a number of training events focusing on developing 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 are 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.
