On 18 May at 7pm, our Changemakers will pitch their ideas for business initiatives that benefit the community at a special event organised by our Community Relations team. And everyone’s invited!
Since 2019, we have been running the annual Changemakers programme, helping people in Lewisham develop their social enterprises and small businesses from an idea into something tangible. These fledgling businesses are usually run by Lewisham Homes’ residents or are aimed at the more vulnerable people in our communities.
Participants apply to join the free eight-week Changemakers course, which provides a good foundation for taking their idea or small business to the next level. The programme culminates in Pitch Night; an opportunity to promote their projects and pitch for support in front of an audience made up of Lewisham Homes staff, partner contractors and organisations like Lewisham Local.
We are excited to be once again able to host Pitch Night as a real-life event.
Why not come along and offer moral support to the changemakers in your community. If a pitch is good enough, you might even wish to provide them with ongoing support. This can be financial, but in the past, we have found that the participants are just as keen to receive in-kind donations or other forms of support that you might be able to offer.
Location: Hatcham House, 367 Queen’s Road, SE14 5HD
Drinks and networking: 9-9:30pm
