Today is Social Enterprise Day…hooray!
To celebrate Social Enterprise Day, I’m very happy to announce the beta launch of Third Sector Forums. A newÂ friendly online community for UK charity professionals, volunteers and social entrepreneurs.
The forums are a place for people to network, learn, debate and discuss third sector issues. Categories include funding, fundraising, governance, legal issues, internet, marketing, campaigns, social enterprise and more. While the forums are third sector focused, private and public professionals are welcome too. The forums are 100% free to use and run by volunteers.
Importantly, they’re going to be user-led, so if you hate the colourscheme enough we’ll change it. If you think the categories are crap, we’ll change them. You get the picture.
The forums were founded by me, so yes this is a shameless plug. I’ve been working hard on developing the forums for a while but they really would not exist without private sector support. The purchase of the forum software was sponsored by Sure Languages. The wonderful Third Sector Forums and Third Sector Lab logos and various graphical elements across the website were created by Nothing Does graphic design and branding consultancy. Last, but by no means least, Clear Blue Designs provided the professional forum set-up and design as well as ongoing technical support and hosting.Â
Hopefully see you on the forums soon.
