Jerry Spencer became interested in co-operatives as a response to unemployment and the latest 'crisis of capitalism' in the 1980s. He trained as a co-operative development worker and worked chiefly in poor neighbourhoods helping to build community- and people-led businesses and initiatives in different parts of the country. In 1996 he joined Liverpool City Council as a social enterprise development officer, supporting the development of co-ops, community and social businesses. He championed the idea of social value and a social return on investment and latterly the idea of community-owned renewable energy co-ops, including setting up Good Neighbour Community Energy which operates a 40kWp solar pv system in Liverpool 8

Tara Hudson

I have been working in communications for the past seven years. In my current role, at Hackney Council, I have regular meet up with groups in the community and the voluntary sector to talk about projects and help get the message out to local residents. I have a keen interest in equalities and have worked on setting up a Hackney LGBTQI+ festival, managed communications for Hackney Carnival which saw over 30,000 attendees, helped with the Council’s Black History Month planning, and for Gypsy, Roma, Traveller History Month met with community members to talk through events and communications to get even more residents involved with their celebrations. I strongly believe the voluntary sector can help not only promote a culture of inclusion within our society but actually tackle root causes of inequalities. That’s why getting the word out the great work you do is so important!
