On Friday, October 29th GCCN hosted Social Future: Supporting a Thriving Social Enterprise Sector for Galway to engage in a dialogue on how a thriving social enterprise sector could be supported in Galway.
The event was held in St. Josephs Community Centre in Shantalla from 10.30am to 12noon and it explored the potential of the social enterprise sector in Galway.
