Now its our turn
Time for the Third Sector voices doing short snappy pitches. We've heard from Lesley-Anne Alexander from RNIB telling us about how they invested £2 million on developing talking TVs for her members. Then the impressive Mick May from social enterprise Blue Sky who is providing radical emplyment options for ex offenders here in London. Mick tells us he can reduce the offending rate by 75%, and with more investment he can do more. Then there was Paul Tolley at Warwickshire CVA, Clare Gilhooly at Cambridge House and last Srabani Sen of Contact a Family, talking about how she reduced the spend on short breaks for families with disabled children by over 75%.
