What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

2011 Environmental Commissioning Needs Analysis

Bradford Council’s Community Funding Unit has asked Bradford Environment Forum to update the environmental needs analysis for the district.  This will then be used to assess how the Community Funding Unit money designated annually for community-focused environmental work will be allocated from 2012 onwards. 
The current amount available from the Community Funding Unit is £54,881, with a possible reduction next year.
A Bradford Environmental Forum sub-committee has been formed.  This group has identified five priorities for the district, plus several overarching requirements that would need to be met by organisations that apply for funding.
Bradford Environmental Forum is asking for feedback and suggestions on the priorities and organisational requirements.  Feedback will be taken into consideration when producing the final recommendations.

The deadline for feedback is the 12th September 2011
