We've been knee-deep in numbers at SSE this week; whether it's discussing social investment with all and sundry, measuring social impact, or powering through "spreadsheets of death". More exciting numbers about some of our Fellows and students this week are below:
– Dave Miller, co-founder of Bikeworks, which is opening Bikeworks West next week; their no. 2 branch to follow the award-winning hub in East London, which will deliver similar services to thousands across west London; see their media page for more info
– Junior Smart, founder of the SOS Gangs Project who is holding the SOS Awards event tonight to recognise the achievements of his team and the clients who have turned their lives around. Of the clients they work with, only 12% reoffend (against a national rate of 75%)
– Jack Harrison, current SSE London student, has won an award from Arthur Guinness/UnLtd to support his work at Carousel Futbal on the Calthorpe Project in Kings Cross. Up to £15,000 towards his excellent work.
