SCEDU: Throwing the baby out with the bath water!

I have just received a rather sad email from SCEDU – (Sheffield Community Enterprise Development Unit) which wrote with regret to inform us “that SCEDU is closing its operations at the end of February. An arrangement is in place to oversee the closure process for the period March – May.  A number of interested parties have expressed their desire to establish a new social enterprise entity in Sheffield with membership drawn from social enterprise practitioners, private sector partners and leading agencies in the field. It is anticipated that the new entity will continue supporting the social enterprise sector.  The Sheffield Social Enterprise Network meeting will still go ahead at SCEDU on Thursday 15th March as the site will remain open in March. It is intended that the potential new organisation will take on the network as one of its priorities.” 

All that expertise built up and thrown away!
