A multi-million pound Lottery funded programme called ‘Fulfilling Lives’ needed a sustainable legacy as the project drew to a close. (Many projects do wonderful work in the community and when the funding runs out the work finishes and the problem remains until the next round of funding come in and the cycle continues).
Bring in Social Enterprise Solutions to come up with some socially innovative ideas that could become sustainable. In 9 months a social enterprise was created and a licensing arrangement with Blackpool Council was drawn up to restore and operate a redundant crazy golf course.
The Crazy Golf course was restored by the homeless/street community to its former 1960’s glory. It now operates at a sustainable enterprise.
