How one organisation is overcoming their challenges through social enterprise

By Iqbal Husain, Director of Shared Heritage

Shared Heritage was set up in 2004 with a vision for using the arts as a catalyst for creating shared spaces in which people could meet. We currently specialise in design and textiles and have gradually developed a programme of work securing small amounts of funding starting with a £2000 grant from the SENSE fund in 2005. This was a local social enterprise fund which was keen to support small projects with a view to them developing trading activities. We designed a felt purse and wallet making project for local community groups that was well received and spurred us on to apply for other funding.
