We are very pleased to announce that Midlands Together CIC has successfully completed a £3 million social investment bond issue.

The support from social investors and charitable trusts, will enable us to create employment for ex-offenders across the west Midlands region. We are also confident that the team in the Midlands will not only bring empty properties back into use, but develop plans to create new social and affordable housing too.

Midlands Together CIC will be lead by Richard Nicol. For more details see www.midlandstogether.co.uk

"It is wonderful news that Richard and the team have been so successful in raising new investment capital" said Paul Harrod. "We look forward to seeing the impact they will have, and the contribution made by our social enterprise partners in the West Midlands."
