Seamus Corrigan – Enviro Care

“I met Margaret a few months ago to discuss constructing a business plan for Enviro Care which is an outdoor and indoor maintenance business. I found Margaret very quick in understanding the key issues facing our business. Our initial meeting lasted a few hours. We discussed the current activities of the business and the areas that we wanted to develop into. Margaret quickly understood the finances of the business and built a realistic and achievable financial and non financial plan. Within a few days of our initial meeting Margaret forwarded me a draft plan & financial projections that only need minor adjustments. The plan was an integral document in the business successfully wining vital funding.”

Michael Culbert – Coiste na nIarchimí

“Coiste Political Tours are delighted with the services and continued support which we have received from Stephanie and the rest of the team at the West Belfast Social Enterprise Hub.  From day one nothing was a problem.  In fact we have been receiving calls from them offering further and incredibly valuable support – particularly concerning issues around social media and advertising, where we were very lacking. This can only be a major plus in our efforts to increase the visitor footfall to West Belfast and Shankill areas.

So I am very glad to publicly declare that we in Coiste are very thankful to our local enterprise hub, its staff and all that they offer. Maith sibhse.”

Miguel from Breochloch - Social Enterprise - The Ortus Group

“In 2015 we began our business adventure with West Belfast Social Enterprise. During this time, and thanks to a dedicated team, we have received training, ideas, a space to work, contacts and most importantly friendship. It has been a year of hard work and without the helping hand of Stephanie, Nicole and Catherine would not have been possible.”

The Dark Experience RNIB

“The assistance Stephanie at the West Belfast Social Enterprise Hub gave us was invaluable. Her vast experience in the social enterprise sector allowed us to easily work through the set-up of this new enterprise. Any organisation based on teamwork – whether it’s in the public, private or voluntary sector – can benefit from The Dark Experience. Organisations working with the sight loss community will deepen their understanding of the people who use their services, and generally, this experiential workshop will help any group of people working together, especially in difficult circumstances when good communication is even more important.”
