There are many different legal structures available for social enterprises. Your choice of structure can have a significant impact on your governance further down the line, and getting your structure right can help you avoid problems as you grow and make the delivery of your mission much smoother.

Our next free masterclass for anyone registered on the Social Enterprise Exchange programme will help you understand some of the key features of common legal structures for social enterprises. The session will be held on the morning of Tuesday 31st January at Blend Kitchen in Sheffield and will be led by Nick Dunn and Dan Lewis, solicitors in the Charities and Social Economy team at Wrigleys Solicitors.

During this interactive session, we’ll be exploring in detail some of the key provisions of governing documents and looking in particular at the importance of the objects clause and the asset lock. The session will be useful for those just starting out, but also for well-established enterprises who may be facing a particular challenge with their structure. The session will begin with breakfast and an opportunity to network with other social enterprises. There will be additional chances to network and to discuss your learning with others throughout the morning.
