Working in collaboration
Midlands Together success will be built though partnerships with enterprises as diverse as bankers and builders.
With the support of the Corporate Finance Team at Triodos Bank the company has successfully raised capital of £3 million through a Social Investment Bond. Many of our investors are investing for the first time but clearly have an interest in making a difference. This Bond provides sufficient capital to finance the purchase and refurbishment of 15 properties each year and through a recycling of resources, over the lifetime of the 5 year bond, invest over £2 million in the wages, training and mentoring of 100-150 ex-offenders.
On the ground, we are joining forces with a number of well-established and respected social enterprises to work with us to recruit, train and support the workforce as they gain valuable experience working in the construction industry.
