Interview with Ladywood Social Entrepreneur

Today's Birmingham Post carries a profile and interview with Post Power 50 member Carol Coombes. Now a business consultant, Carol has a track record of successful social enterprise, including the Babywood creche and Ladywood Furniture Project.

“People around us were getting a flat or house and then were unable to furnish it,” she said. “This often caused a spiral which ended in their not being able to keep the tenancy or get another. The furniture project was simple. We sought donations of unwanted, good quality, furniture and then passed the pieces on to people who needed them.”
