One solution to the government's call for bringing business into the charity and voluntary sector - not traditionally comfortable bedfellows - could be community interest companies.

"The reason the model seems to be very strong and fits the Big Society is because of the skill sets that we all have, the backgrounds we all have, and the relevance of the work that we do, so we've been able to bring that knowledge and experience to the table to create this company.

"My concern is that in other areas, there might not be people who have those skill sets, so how can they set up a community interest company?"
