Hi folks just joined CIC thought I'd say I. I'm working with Penwith Radio CIC in Penzance, Cornwall and looking to set up a coaching/wellbeing CIC with a small group of therapists and coaches.

Nice to meet you all (in the virtual sense of the word)

For some time there have been a number of church initiatives to reduce energy bills (and environmental impact) by installing such equipment on church-owned premises. It's not always possible, practically or because of listing status and other heritage building issues, to instal on the main church roof - but other options are often possible (including installations at associated premises, like church halls or church schools). If anyone wants to know more please contact me directly

Hi Cecile,

We moved to the South West in  the Forest of Dean 5 years ago. By this time, our 'profit for purpose' approach had been established since 2004 in the UK when we were interviewed about preceding work in Russia to leverage a micro enterprise development initiative.


In May 2004 a working model of P-CED and its first social product, a community interest broadband proposal published.  

This time 5 years ago we were heavily embroiled in overseas efforts where we took on the human rights issue of children abandoned to state care and set about proposing potential social enterprise solutions. 


The microeconomic 'Marshall Plan' strategy was delivered later that year and 5 years on, the impact may be observed in the report RBS requested for the SE100 index.  

We'd begun in 1996 with a paper proposing a sustainable economic paradigm as an alternative to laissez faire capitalism.  Our work in sustainability includes presentations for the Economics for Ecology conferences in Sumy.  

Locally, we seem to be placed in the land that social enterprise forgot and we're still pursuing the aim of a community sustainability initiative in the Forest.
