Upcoming online events from Social Enterprise Scotland.

Consultation session – Wellbeing & Sustainable Development Bill with Sarah Boyack MSP – 23rd January onlineIn December, Sarah Boyack MSP launched a consultation on the Wellbeing & Sustainable Development (Scotland) Bill. The Bill would see the introduction of a much-needed Future Generations Commissioner in Scotland, tasked with putting wellbeing at the centre of big decisions. At Social Enterprise Scotland we welcome the introduction of this Bill, as many social enterprises across Scotland already do the work to deliver this. This session will provide an opportunity to hear from Sarah Boyack MSP herself on the Proposal of the Bill with an opportunity to ask questions. This will be followed by a discussion amongst social enterprises that will inform our response to the consultation. To book a place at the session click here.

Consultation session – Disability Employment Gap – 24th January onlineThe Economy and Fair Work Committee at the Scottish Parliament has launched a call for views on the disability employment gap. Many social enterprises create pathways to work and real jobs for people with disabilities, taking an asset-based approach to supporting people to fulfil their potential. With their expertise in supporting people furthest from the labour market, they have a key role to play in addressing the Disability Employment Gap. Please join us at this informal session and share your views and experience to inform our consultation response to Government. Sign up here.

Health Inequalities in Scotland – 6th February onlineHealth inequalities are pervasive across Scotland, and the gap in health between the wealthiest and most deprived has widened in recent years. A recent report by the Fraser of Allander Institute examines this, looking at trends in key socioeconomic determinants of health in Scotland since 1999. However, there is also a huge number of social enterprises across Scotland working to address this gap. Please join us at this session to hear from The Fraser of Allander Institute on the key findings and trends of the report. We will then hear from Morphfit, a social enterprise specifically addressing health and mobility for people who experiences a range of health issues, followed by a Q&A session and general discussion on Health Inequalities & potential solutions. Sign up to the webinar here.
