21st Century Innovations in Social Enterprise

It offers social enterprises and policy makers an insight into newer developments in the field using examples of their practical application in other parts of the UK.

The Lattice Works programme was managed by Jez Hall from Shared Future CIC in partnership with Mandy Naylor from Latent Promise.
