Adapt (NE) invited to PM’s Social Enterprise Roundtable

Liz Prudhoe and other guests outside number ten

Director of Adapt (NE), Liz Prudhoe, was invited to speak at Downing Street last month at a special roundtable for heads of social enterprises. The event, organised by Lord Bird, founder of The Big Issue, was a chance for leading individuals from social enterprises across a range of sectors to discuss how the government can protect and expand the role social enterprises can and should play in the public service economy.

Liz (pictured back, centre) was asked to speak about the difference Adapt (NE) is making in improving the quality of life for those with a disability, and those with mobility restrictions due to living in remote locations and limited access to public transport.

She says, “It was a privilege to be asked to attend this event focusing on social enterprises. As a small but growing organisation, the roundtable was an opportunity to demonstrate the significant role Adapt (NE) plays in the local community and economy. We were able to showcase the broad portfolio of services we offer, from transport to advocacy, and from equipment loan to the new community café at our Burn Lane site”.
