Where would we be without MCR? They’ve given us so much help – and we’re a huge fan of what they’re up to. The MCR Pathways team use a mentoring model to help looked- after young people in Scotland achieve their potential – through HE, FE and employment. Super wonderful brilliantness.

Blacknell Ventures have a forward thinking social commitment of giving 10% of their revenue to social businesses – which is utterly amazing. We’ve loved their encouragement too, and have benefitted greatly from the sage advice they’ve given.
