What's happening at the Mill

Our new training centre at Selgars Mill supports communities to create new responses to a range of crises, from the decline of the high street to the impacts of climate change, from youth unemployment to food insecurity.  Our programmes are developed with a site-wide approach, using as much of the buildings and surroundings to create valuable educational and cultural experiences.

We have postponed the official opening of the site to Spring 2021, but in the meantime we have used the opportunity to craft an online programme BeyondHERE, a six week webinar series connecting UK communities with inspiring international projects in other parts of the world.

Employee Ownership

Accelerator

16 - 18 April 2021

Employee ownership has been around for many years with names like John Lewis and Scott Barder. The sector has seen real growth in recent years driven by a resurgence of values-led entrepreneurs with the 2014 finance act removing the disincentive for owners to sell their businesses into the ‘trust’ of their employees. Recent converts have included Riverford Organics, Aardman Animation, and Richer Sounds.

 

This 3-day course will give help plan your next steps.
