Kings Norton social entrepreneurs amongst winners of SEUK social enterprise awards 2012

Birmingham’s Jayne Hulbert and Jayne Cresswell, founders of The SWEET Project, are winners of SE UK’s Social Enterprise Award 2012 in the Social Entrepreneurs category.

The two Jaynes set up the SWEET Project in 2010 in Birmingham to deliver high quality work experience placements for 100 social work students and family and child protection support for 600 at risk families.

Since start-up the enterprise has worked on 320 child protection cases and in the past year helped remove fifty families from Local Authority child protection lists. The enterprise is growing quickly and looks set to be replicated in other cities.

Supported by UnLTD, The Sweet project works with Birmingham City Council and voluntary organisations providing intensive support to families and adults in need, predominantly on the three estates of Kings Norton.

    Very proud of the 2 Jaynes and the fantastic work that The Sweet Project is doing as I gave them their initial support and funding when I worked for UnLtd. Great to see this enterprise fulfilling its potential!
