There’s never been a more important time to invest in the future of your business by working with people who know business best. Other business leaders.

The Peer Networks programme is for SME leaders that want to stabilise, grow and develop their organisation with the support of like-minded entrepreneurs from across the Liverpool City Region’s social enterprise business community.

Learn From Your Peers

Find solutions to the real issues your business is facing by working with other local business leaders facing similar challenges.

All It Takes Is Your Time

The programme is fully funded so there is no cost to join Peer Networks, other than a few hours of your time each month.


Peer Networks brings together business leaders working collaboratively to find solutions to common problems and new opportunities. You will not be placed in a group with any direct or indirect competitors, so you can share your expertise and benefit from others.

In the Liverpool City Region, we have a group specifically for social enterprises which is starting in September 2021, and will be led by delivery partner School for Social Entrepreneurs Northwest. Alternatively, the programme provides the opportunity to join one of the other Peer Networks groups in the Liverpool City Region, which bring together a mix of sectors.
