Leslie’s Care Packages

Today’s interview is with the founder of Leslie’s Care Packages. It is I think Stourbridge’s and the Black country’s fourth emergency service. It was founded in 2016 by Vi Wood, following her own experiences when she and her Family was in danger of losing their own home. The Voluntary Group has been set up in tribute to her late husband Leslie, helping homeless and vulnerable people across the Black Country, West Midlands.

All the links are in the shownotes. It would make a big difference to Vi and all the people I interview if you rated and reviewed the show in itunes . TO make this easier we have a link on our website to make this really easy. Go to socialgood podcast.com. Please share the interview with friends on social media and help Vi and others.

Homelessness is not a choice, and can happen to anyone at any time. Homeless are from all walks of life, from failed marriages, loss of jobs, loss of family members, people being abused, and with mental health issues. Homelessness isn’t just suffered by rough sleepers.The “hidden homeless” are those living in unsuitable, temporary or crowded accommodation. Homelessness is devastating, leaving people vulnerable, low self-esteem and isolated and everyone deserves a place to call home.

Vic Elizabeth

An invisible force in the North and beyond; Vic works tirelessly to enable folk to achieve their dreams and ambitions, whatever their background.

Vic has over twelve year’s experience of working with national, award-winning youth charities and across the creative industries. She’s a massive advocate of the power of informal learning, DIY approaches and raw talent as routes to success – with a big, fat passion for social mobility and capital, and in turn it’s incredible strength to break down all sorts of barriers, from education and employment, to success in certain industries (oh, hello creative / arts / media world!). In recognition of her achievements to date, Vic was included on the prestigious Northern Power Women Future List 2017 and in the same year, awarded a mentor and funding through Flourish CIC’s supporting women in social enterprise scheme.

 

Originally and proudly from Sheffield, Vic decided that after her GCSE’s, she was done with the formalities of education, and went down a more vocational route, from a National Diploma in Media Production at College, to then graduating with HND in the same subject from Salford Uni. Now, this was quite a while ago, mind. It’s her personal journey, that drives her passion for helping people succeed – no matter who they are or where they’ve come from.

Pradeepa Narayanaswamy

In this episode my guest is Pradeepa Narayanaswamy. Pradeepa is the Founder of Lives Transformed she’s worked with corporates and senior managers to maximise their effectiveness. Not a subject that grabs me or probably you as a listener.  I’m more interested in her work that followed her own personal challenge.

She loved her role and enjoyed helping colleagues and providing the coaching support they needed for career and personal challenges.  She fell in love with coaching. Then…. Her biggest life challenge showed up…. Infertility.

I asked Pradeepa (who’s based in the Dallas Fort Worth area) to tell me her story.
