free support for social enterprises in West Lancs
Reported by: Hubmaker Media Follow Hubmaker Media on FacebookHubmaker Media on Twitter

Have you ever thought that you'd like to start a business that doesn't just make a profit, but also makes the world a better place? Then you might want to think about starting a social enterprise - a type of organisation that combines the business savvy of the private sector with the social mission of a charity.

Big social enterprises that you may have heard of include The Big Issue, Jamie Oliver's chain of 'Fifteen' restaurants, or Divine Chocolate - but there are also lots of much smaller social enterprises that all try to improve the world we live in, in their own particular way.

Like the idea but don't know where to start? Get in touch with a new, free, local service designed to help new social enterprises in the Southport and West Lancashire area. You can get one to one support from a qualified business advisor to help you see if your idea could be developed; access to small amounts of start-up funding (up to £500); plus additional training and development opportunities as your organisation grows.

HOSPITAL CAR PARK CHANGES
Reported by: Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust

Changes to hospital parking and fees:

Parking for patients and visitors should increase by at least 120 spaces at Ormskirk and District General Hospital later this year.

Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust is seeking planning permission to expand parking at the top of the main car park which faces the hospital entrance. The land is currently set aside for helicopter transfers.

Neil Aindow, Capital Projects Manager, said: “There are now few occasions when this facility is needed. By making alternative arrangements we can use this land more productively for the benefit of patients and visitors.”

The Trust also announced charges for some visitors parking at Ormskirk and Southport hospitals will rise from 1 April 2015. It is the first increase since 2013. Parking for staff will also cost more.
