To celebrate #CollegesWeek and “Get Online Week 2020” – a campaign managed by the Good Things Foundation - we are delighted to invite you to our next virtual Politics Cafe: Let’s Talk About Social Housing.

Welcome to our second politics café of the term!

This session we will be discussing the important topic that is social housing.

"The largest contributor to affordable housing is the social housing sector" - Office for National Statistics. 

This meeting will feature Carole Donnelly. Carole is an award-winning social entrepreneur who has a real passion for making a difference in and around her local community. After spending over 20 years working in the social housing management sector, Carole helped set up a Tenant led social housing company that inspired her to be more entrepreneurial and set up her own social enterprises. These have included a bakery project to save a historic building; the Community Empowerment Academy; The Inspiration Club; Coventry Priory and more recently her own consultancy supporting social and traditional entrepreneurs in the Midlands.

Throughout her entrepreneurial journey, Carole’s aims remain the same. To inspire individuals and communities to ‘be the change they want to see’. It hasn’t been a straight forward journey and has led her to develop a number of real coping strategies to overcome burnout and build resilience.
