My name is Mike Kerr from URstart. Our aim is to develop a new business plan over the next two months. This new social enterprise will be a Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Warrington. We plan to operate in council estates and assist in the internal and external redevelopment and regeneration of the current social housing stock (One goal is to work in conjunction with Golden Gates Housing Trust).
We will carry out home repairs, redecoration and landscaping jobs which have either been backlogged with the council or commissioned direct via our office.
The team will be made up of a centralised office which will control and direct our flexible workforce. The workforce will be made up of experienced and fully-qualified masters in their trades, accompanied by volunteer apprentices who are training at college and require on-the-job experience to master their selected skills. All employees will be CRB checked.
