North Bristol Advice Centre has set up Buzz Lockleaze, a new social enterprise growing opportunities for the long term benefit of local people. Based at 6 Gainsborough Square in Lockleaze, Buzz was set up in January 2014 and has three projects:
Shop, café and garden
Providing access to good food locally, a place for people to meet and socialise and providing volunteering and training opportunities.
Supporting local business by offering Business Support Grants to start-ups, self-employed people or micro-businesses as well as hotdesking and office space.
Working one to one with people to help them overcome barriers to employment and find paid work.
Longer term it is hoped that Buzz Lockleaze will be able to provide some funds to support the advice work that NBAC does.
