Over the years, there has been little practical help for practitioners wanting to replicate through social franchising and replication. That is the reason ICSF was founded.
Social franchising training with ICSF and School for Social Entrepreneurs
The International Centre for Social Franchising and School for Social Entrepreneurs London have once again partnered to bring you Social Franchising, starting in January 2014.
With insight and inside stories (good and bad) from practitioners and experts across all sectors, Social Franchising will provide you with knowledge and principles of social franchising and the practical tools that you need as you decide how to replicate and grow your organisation.
If you are a senior member of staff at a charity or social enterprise considering franchising as a route to scale, please register your interest so that we can contact you with further information by clicking here.
A grant to get investment ready
The Social Investment Business has launched a £10m three-year Investment and Contract Readiness Fund on behalf of the Office for Civil society. This grant will help prepare social ventures to receive investment, and bid for public-service contracts.
The ICSF is seeking UK partners for joint applications to this fund. If you are interested in exploring this—we would love to hear from you.
