Local Authorities

We work with local authorities to deliver business training, business clinics, mentoring and advise on community integration in local development.

Tree Shepherd fosters meaningful relationships with residents borough-wide.

Tree Shepherd is a trusted, established social enterprise which fosters meaningful relationships with residents borough-wide and delivers results. Our approach is based on understanding residents’ needs, and patiently supporting them.

In order that local authorities are better able to reach their social objectives, a package of support for start-ups that is sensitive to community ability and need is essential. Even from school age, local authority provision continues to focus on the ‘journey to jobs’ without including the entrepreneur option.

It is clear from our social impact reporting that we are bringing about positive, meaningful change in the lives of borough residents. Through our intervention, entrepreneurialism is enabled, meaningful employment for local people is triggered and employability skills are raised.
