A Toolkit to Establish BME-led Community Enterprise

By Jeff Scales; Contributors input from Yvonne Field, Karl Murray

This is the first BME-led Community Enterprise toolkit. The need for it emerged as a key recommendation of the MEL Programme and from Ubele’s experiences of supporting community businesses and social enterprises.  It highlighted an urgent need for BME communities to be offered targeted support, advice, capacity building and investment to enable them to both establish and strengthen Community Businesses.
