Advocates for social good

The Sewing Rooms co-founders Paula Gamester and Maureen Fazal have had a very busy Autumn. Speaking at a number of events around the country, they have shared their expertise gained through first-hand experience.

Most recently, Paula and Maureen spoke at the BBI Health and Social Care HOMES Summit that explored how housing affects health and wellbeing. Earlier this year, they presented their shared vision for ageing well to The South West Academic Health Science Network. And locally, Paula and Maureen spoke at the Lancashire 50+ Forum in September.

Collaboration is key in the social sector, and social enterprise is a cornerstone of strong communities. As a force for good, and through the work of dedicated individuals and organisations, social enterprise is making inroads into reducing inequalities and improving life for people around the world. Please get in touch to find out ways you can get involved – from #BuyingSocial for gifts to donating fabrics and items or your time, the entire team at The Sewing Rooms would love to hear from you!
