The event is designed to meet the needs of community groups as identified in a survey carried out by the Plunkett Foundation. It follows a successful similar event held in September in Somerset.
The Community Business Networking Event will take place on 13 November at The Studio, Whitehall Road, Leeds and groups are invited to book their places now.
All kinds of community owned and run enterprises are invited – whether they have been trading for years or are just beginning.
