It’s good to talk

If anyone recalls the slogan from that BT advert with Bob Hoskins from the 1990s: ‘It’s good to talk’, it’s one that’s been ringing in my ears lately. I’ve been doing more talking than I probably ever have and, hand-in-hand with that, I’ve also been listening.  HOT’s Xaverine Bates reports on the recent inaugural gathering for local social enterprises and other social economy organisations.

Why you should care about your local Social Economy
