What do you need?


What does it mean to be a member of SCS CIC? How do you get the most out of your membership, and how can we make it easier to participate? 

We need your feedback to answer these questions: please take five minutes (promise!) before August 20th to answer some simple questions. 

You don't need to only be a member of SCS CIC to complete the form. We like to hear a variety of opinions!

You can answer more then once, for different organisations; you can answer as an individual; and you might want to discuss in your team and present a collective position. All contributions are welcomed!

Could you be a director of a growing co-operative? 

Free Zoom webinar for anyone who wants to Build Back Better! 

Time: Jul 23, 2020 10:00 AM London


In just an hour an a half, Alex Lawrie will provide a quick introduction to what it's like being a director of a community enterprise or co-operative. If you've ever thought about it, but felt that you don't have the right skills, knowledge or enough time, Alex aims to bust those myths by explaining:
  • what kind of support you can expect in a good team 
  • how you can make a difference to your local area and help others
  • which co-ops in Somerset are looking for directors like you
  • how you can learn skills and develop new careers with the experience
  • why it's so fulfilling, but also how to avoid some common hazards
  • what the legal duties and protections are
