Who we are

Communities Inc. is a new (BME-led) national social enterprise which builds on the 50 years experience and expertise of its two founding directors Shamsher Chohan and Michael Henry. It was set up as a response to the lack of creativity and innovation being demonstrated by not for profit organisations when seeking to challenge inequalities, discrimination and deprivation in an environment of ever decreasing resources. Communities Inc’s focus is on projects that break down barriers and which empower and inspire both individuals and organisations. This includes supporting community research, capacity-building and projects that encourage sustainable integration and partnership-working. We do not receive any core funding and are funded on a project-by-project basis. This ensures that we are always able to find the best people to meet the needs of specific projects. We have several ongoing projects; please see projects for more details.
