E3M Collective Impact Project - Evaluation Report

E3M Collective Impact Project – Evaluation Report

/ Learning Resource, Networks

The Alchemy Collective Impact Project, developed by E3M & Social Business International and supported by the Connect Fund, was delivered in Oldham, Rotherham and Gainsborough and demonstrated the power of collaboration between social enterprises, commissioners and investors.

This series of events developed by a team of social enterprise and investment experts gave participants permission to “think differently”, catalysing understanding of social enterprises and new models for the delivery of social good, relationships which will be the foundation for ongoing social development and action in the form of new partnerships and projects. Around £12m of social investment was unlocked directly as a result of the programme, with projects and communities in all three locations benefitting.
