Vision Care for Homeless People is very pleased to announce that it’s Birmingham clinic has been successful in receiving a grant of £1,000 from The Wisdom Factory Community Interest Company which is a social enterprise. At least 5% of turnover is set aside for a grant-making fund that will be allocated to Birmingham good causes in the spring of each year, just after the company’s year-end. And we’re based in an old factory.
The Wisdom Factory CIC was founded by Mike Mounfield in February 2012. The team is made up of Directors and Associates with some essential things in common: they are all experts at what they do; they are all interesting (and fun) people to be around and to engage in your business and they share The Wisdom Factory CIC’s vision.
This year they had more than three times the number of applications than we have funding so the competition was very fierce and decision making was very difficult. We are happy to say that our application was successful.
