A bright future for Social Enterprise in Solihull

From its humble beginnings as a project within The Colebridge Trust, Solihull SUSTAiN has grown into a serious driver for change in Solihull in terms of Third Sector Support Services, Third Sector Development & Voice and Social Enterprise.

SUSTAiN is now the parent organisation leaving The Colebridge Trust free as its enterprise & community development arm to focus on what it does best. The Colebridge Trust is alive and well and thriving

The Colebridge Trust currently operates three Social Enterprises and two Community Projects.

The enterprises consist of:

Waterloo Woodwork which provides work experience and training for adults with learning disabilities and produces a wide range of quality timber products in the process.

Colebridge Communications is expanding to provide state of the art content managed websites at extremely competitive prices; a design to print service that covers everything from flyers to T-shirts; a mobile exhibition space in the form of a converted mobile library and a door to door distribution service in North Solihull.

Colebridge IT Services which can do anything from basic single PC maintenance to a fully integrated office IT network.

All of these enterprises have tremendous growth potential with highly skilled staff providing the very best products and services. Delivering excellence is key.

We are keen to talk to anyone who wants Wooden Products, Web, Print, IT and Communications services that offer high quality and excellent value for money. Contact Charles Rapson on 0121 770 8889 or email charlesr@solihull-sustain.org.uk to discuss.
