    Story

    Michelle Smith founded the company in April 2009 when she identified a need in the Community, to create youth opportunities for the young people of Toxteth and Kensington. We were then able to deliver employment support (Michelle worked as a Volunteer as an experienced employment coach to deliver job-cafes in the Community), and youth provision, such as Dance workshops and general youth engagement and support.

    Mpower People CIC is a non-for-profit social enterprise Community Interest Company. Mpower People CIC provide activities which empower individuals towards living healthier, more independent lives, relating to increasing sustainable employment opportunities, enterprise development or personal development.

    In November 2011, Michelle was recognised as one of the Future 100 young social entrepreneurs who were changing the face of everyday business and improving commerce’s impact on the wider world, from The Future 100 Awards organised by Striding Out, sponsored by Ernst and Young. In May 2013 Michelle was awarded the one of the Future 50 young social entrepreneur awards. Michelle is now too old to win any more "young" awards! Michelle is currently working fulltime - but funding for her wage has run out since April 2017. We are seeking funding to allow Michelle to stay within Mpower People CIC and continue to deliver services to and support our disabled and clients with learning difficulties.

    Activities that would continue include:

    Art Therapy

    Computer Club

    Maths

    Volunteer Opportunities
