Being in business helping others

All that it takes for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing

….. Or something like that.

For those who don’t know, prior to working for myself I spent my entire working life in the NHS. I worked in Elderly care, then Elderly Mental Health then moved over into IT.

Working in the public sector was a conscious decision on my part. Aside from enjoying it greatly, I felt like I was giving something back.

When I set up Hub Projects, I was worried that I wouldn’t be in a position to do this any more. But….

A friend of mine fosters children. He is a great guy and his wife is a wonderful woman. He told me about this great group of people called Every Child Leaving Care Matters. There is a stark inequality in the ages that children are looked after depending on whether they are fostered or in care. I contacted them and agreed to build a website for them and host it for nothing. It’s such a sorry and sad state of affairs that this inequality exists. Like my friend, these people aren’t just talking about it and tutting, they’ve decided to do something.

So I built this site – http://eclcm.org.

For one reason and another, it took a little longer than usual but it’s now up and running; just waiting for some content.

They’ve got a petition that you could sign to help. If you’d like to do so just click on this image.

The folks over at ECLCM were pleased with the site. Here are some of their comments.

So there you have it! I feel like I’ve given something back and the people doing the hard work to rectify a wrong have somewhere to refer people to – in a nutshell:
