Community Renewal

Programme Events

For 25 years, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) has been helping people to solve society's big problems, and ignite change in their communities.  For the first time SSE is running a programme in Bath and North East Somerset with 3SG.

3SG Events

These are free networking and training events developed and hosted by 3SG specifically based upon requests from our members. Topics include Trustee Development, Social Media Media Tools, Fundraising and a variety of different in person networking events.

External Events

Some of the events we advertise are running independently of 3SG, organised by a completely separate company, usually trying to help a broader audience than the BaNES area. These are often ticketed events and are not free but usually offer excellent advice that will benefit our community.

We have a broad variety of events that we recommend today, all of which aim to help third sector organisations in Bath & North East Somerset (BaNES) to thrive. Some of these are developed and driven by 3SG ourselves, some are generated through close cooperation with others organisations, specifically for 3SG BaNES, and the rest are developed independently of 3SG, and are advertised below as useful resources fopr the BaNES community. A complete list of events is available below.
