Social Impact

How do we do this?
We provide a platform enabling vulnerable and socially excluded people to turn their aspirations into reality; have a sense of belonging and to access the resources and skills to develop their career and quality of life.


We deliver targeted services aimed at removing barriers to work and improving an individual’s wellbeing. For example: employment and self-employment focused short courses, motivational activities and events or language courses. We offer a wide range of skills and training opportunities to individuals and community/voluntary groups including Self-development workshops, Social Inclusion activities, Functional skills and Digital Inclusion courses. We assess the skills and strengths of individuals and help them to develop action plans that will help them into sustainable employment.


We help people move into self-employment and set up their own businesses, through a range of activities including, Enterprise Qualifications, Business Skills Development and One to One Mentoring Support. We deliver a structured work experience programme focusing on key business areas such as Marketing, Administration, Graphics & Web design, Social Media and Bookkeeping. We provide office accommodation and administrative support services to new community groups and offer access to our computer suite and conference room facilities to the local community and training providers. We are currently working with leaders from new communities in Coventry to map the needs of their communities and to better understand the support they need to develop their organisations.
