RSA South West – Social enterprise debate series in partnership with Dartington Trust

Austerity has stimulated the exploration of alternative ways of providing public services. One option is through the use of social enterprise but it is not a model that has yet been fully tested centrally or locally. 

The Dartington Hall Trust and the RSA South West have come together to host a series of debates addressing the question. The series will culminate in an Open Forum Workshop at Dartington on Saturday 28 September where the principal themes and issues raised across the region will be explored in more detail with a view to initiating an RSA/Dartington collaborative project related to social enterprise.
