First Blog Published

OUR FIRST PIECE OF FUNDING
Thanks to a funding project between UnLtd., Social Enterprise Acumen and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, we received our first piece of financial funding (£500) as a Lead the Change Award winner. Not a huge amount in the great scheme of things, but it was enough to start the wheels turning.

The First SpeakEasy group
Our award-winning SpeakEasy groups started in Stockton-on-Tees at the Labyrinth Holistiic Cafe. The first person to walk through the door (other than us) was a lovely man called John. In fact he was the only person who came. Things have changed since then, but John still comes along and we're delighted that he does.
