Level One toolkit for developing social enterprise is being trialed within the partnership. Depending on feedback, this toolkit could be used across the region to support community enterprise work.
At a sub-regional level, two areas have employed community animateurs as a way of engaging with particular local communities to introduce community enterprise as a way of funding the organisation's objectives, and engaging individuals in the labour market, e.g. working with Sikh temples, mosques and other faith organisations.
The apprenticeship model developed by the DP is to be adopted by British Waterways as part of their national recruitment policy.
