Tree Shepherd is an organisations which nurtures the ‘seed’ of a small business idea and helps it grow in order to help local communities and areas which are struggling.

People often have natural entrepreneurial skills but with some guidance and direction these skills can transform not just these people’s lives but entire areas.

Colin Crooks is an amazing man with huge amounts of energy who has brought his ideas to Lambeth and and helped many budding entrepreneurs take their first step into business.

He especially focuses on those who others might see as a challenge, the long term unemployed and those who traditionally would be seen as unemployable.

I spoke to Colin this week in his office in Brixton Hill to find out what he is doing, why he thinks what he is doing works and what he needs.
