This is to invite those groups, who are in the process of developing their capacity, to a opening event run by a charity called Pilotlight. The charity Pilotlight is a unique, capacity building organisation offering free tailored strategic planning support to charities and social enterprises that are tackling disadvantage in the UK. They match  charity leaders and social enterprise leaders with teams of senior business people and facilitate a year long engagement to plan for sustainability, development and growth.

Sobus is pleased to be able to work with Pilotlight to secure placements for organisations registered with us. The process will involve an introductory session which will be held on either 24th June at 3:30pm or 27th June at 9:00am. These opening session will last 2 hours. After this you will be asked to make a formal application should you be interested in taking up a place on the Pilotlight programme.  The whole process lasts for 10 – 12 months and requires you to attend mentoring sessions with a team of business leaders who guide you through a planned process enabling your organisation develop. I would strongly suggest that this would help organisations that struggle with funding and require added support.

Please let me know if you are interested and let me know which date you can attend. Please if you are not certain then take a look at the Piloltlight website:

If you could come back to me as quickly as possible I would be grateful. Only so many places are available ……
