Community led Hydro initiatives - Diffusion Pack
Local United Diffusion Pack
At Local United we are aiming to develop a mutually-supporting group of social enterprises; initially providing an “incubator space” for social enterprises and co-ordinating our search for finance for successful social enterprise models.
NESTA have provided funding for the development and dissemination of the attached diffusion pack which have been written and reviewed by people with first-hand knowledge of the community and climate action sectors they work in. Often the authors will have been involved in the conception of the project idea and in many cases they would now be regarded as experts in their fields.
If you are downloading this pack because you are (or aim to be) a social enterprise who wishes to use, adapt or develop these diffusion packs then please send your contact name and e.mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with LOCAL UNITED in the title of the e.mail.
Of course, any information provided is only as up to date as the day it goes to print. Many of the specific examples have worked so well because of the people involved, the skills they possess or the resources that were available to them. Thus these examples will predominantly serve as an inspirational call to arms. However, many of the packs contain useful ‘how to’ guides, copies of legal templates or list of regulations, all of which may be useful to community groups wishing to set out on their own project. All of the packs contain notes or links on where to find more help.
