USE IT! is an exciting and innovative 3-year programme, launched in early 2017, to create a new ‘place-based’ network of social enterprises and community businesses who use local assets to tackle poverty and social isolation in their local neighbourhoods across West Birmingham and Sandwell.
The programme has been specifically developed to support participating enterprises to solve local social and economic issues, enable skills development and open up new markets for the ethically-based goods and services they deliver.
Co-operative Futures is one of several delivery partners in the project and is responsible for providing community development and business development support for co-operatives and community businesses.
