But how do I become a Changemaker? We hear you ask, by joining Lewisham Changemakers, a programme and network for social entrepreneurs, charities, community groups or local businesses who wish to create or grow a social enterprise in Lewisham.
Those who apply successfully will take part in an eight week course focusing on how to run a small businesses or social enterprise, provided free of charge by Lewisham Homes and Lewisham Local to successful applicants. Attendees are taught everything they will need to set up their social enterprise or small business, from governance to online communications.
You can find out more about the programme, including its proven track record of success, on the Changemakers website. In short, participants can expect to feel more confident about their project, be better connected in their local community and able to access new funding as a result of what they’ve learned.
Please do apply, as it is an amazing opportunity for Lewisham residents to learn how to run their own business or social enterprise, and you don’t need to be a Lewisham Homes resident to apply.
Please note: Applications close at midnight on 3 January 2022 and applicants must be 18 or older.
