Dear Supporter,

I hope this email finds you well, we’re now four months into 2023 and I can honestly say that so far this year is one of abundance and growth at Tree Shepherd HQ!

We had our second Women in Enterprise event earlier this month to coincide with International Women’s Day. As always it is wonderful to be surrounded by women from all backgrounds and sectors united in their positivity and desire to support one another not only on IWD but also along their self-employment journeys. We all left the event inspired and I for one can’t wait until our next event (keep an eye out for dates or drop us a line here if you’d like to take part).

This leads me to say a few words about International Women’s Day. We all know that with these ‘days’ we should be celebrating the achievements of those who are being celebrated every day but life isn't always like that. It’s important for all of us to be reminded to make the space and give recognition and praise to the many important and vital contributions that women have / do and will continue to make in the lives of us all.

Keep an eye on your inbox for our GROW newsletter where each month we highlight a different aspect of starting or running a business. Our hope is that these can be saved and reflected on or referred to when necessary.
We’re always looking for contributors SO… if you have a skill or advice that you’d like to share with our community then please get in touch! Even if it’s only a few words of encouragement. All help is welcome.

The year is certainly shaping up to be a busy one!

All the best,

Sandra and the Tree Shepherd team

We’re moving!

You may have heard or noticed that Thrive is moving. We are so excited about this and all the possibilities that it will open for our Thrive family. We hope that our new space will be up and running by the end of April at which point we’ll be able to give you all the glorious details of what will be on offer.

We want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to British Land for their ongoing and invaluable support and commitment to our area and project.

Lambeth College

Rhian recently visited Lambeth College and spoke about the training opportunities that we offer for young people in Clapham and Vauxhall as part of our partnership with the Walcott Foundation. Working with young people is a real passion for us. We know that there can be challenges engaging and that these relationships can take time and effort, but the payoff is well worth it, not only for the individual but also for the wider community.

This year Tree Shepherd and the Walcott Foundation will continue our valuable partnership. Together we will be delivering even more of our popular and successful enterprise courses, workshops and networking events designed to meet the specific needs of young people .

If you would like to talk with us about our courses or find out more about how we could support you and your business journey contact us here.
