What Do Our
Social Entrepreneurs Say

“The programme has surpassed my expectations; I cannot express how grateful we are for such support at such a crucial time for our new society. We got onto the programme literally days after our registration came through as a Community Benefit Society from the Financial Conduct Authority. Our first meeting took place as we were negotiating space within a community centre. Our consultant; Nathan Brown took us step by step through all the policies that we needed to have in place.

This type of support is so crucial for BME-led social enterprises. I’m grateful for the confidence it has given me to grow my voice and to see myself as a Founding Director that I can be this person. That there is a space at the table for me.”
