Our Impact Programme (IBU) supports hundreds of locals startup and stay in business, through the innovation they apply due to our training and workshops. Our IBU Online sessions, so far supported/reached over 200 attendees in our network during COVID-19 through daily and weekly check-ins, Tea & Cakes and Lunch & Learn sessions delivered via video conferencing. This helped to support both personal and professional development, as well as the mental wellbeing of our audience, through a very difficult and uncertain time.
IBU will continue on and offline once we return to our space on Electric Lane in the heart of Brixton. We will support hundreds more train to get back into employment or freelancing by gaining practical skills valuable to our local businesses. We also address the loneliness that can exist for freelancers, entrepreneurs and the unemployed working from home by providing them somewhere to come and network, socialise and make serendipitous connections that we all need to move forward.
