‘LARCH Live’ is about getting involved and having the chance to support and influence how LARCH develops in your area.
There are opportunities for individuals, and organisations from the public, private and VCSE sectors to get involved in the development and delivery of the LARCH programme.
Our aim is to help create a thriving social economy and networks of social enterprises and enterprising VCS organisations in Redcar & Cleveland and Hartlepool, through peer groups, social enterprise forums, enterprise development activities, training and events.
LARCH is organising and promoting events and activities to raise awareness and understanding about the value and relevance of social enterprise, enterprising income streams and repayable social investment as part of our ambition to shift the culture and build a strong social economy. These include resources, workshops and presentations, events and competitions, blogs etc.
