Networking and Partnerships
Networking and Partnerships is the second module in the ViSEnet learning materials – and offers practical guidance to explain the benefits of networking and collaborations for social enterprises in the rural context.
A more in-depth breakdown of these chapters is given below. Note that it isn’t necessary to work your way through all of the chapters, and you can dip in and out as you need.
These chapters build on the information and skills learned from the previous module, and explain the basics of networking.
This includes how to host and attend events, why it’s important to have a wide network of peers and supporters to reach out to and learn from, and guidance for digital networking and outreach.
The final chapter explains the benefits of partnership working for rural social and community enterprises.
When smaller social enterprises come together to deliver services, they can create impact which would be more difficult, or impossible to achieve through working independently.
