"I met the people who run RE:generate, which creates community activists by going door to door, listening to people’s concerns…. These social enterprises are dealing with some of the most intractable problems facing society, family breakdown, chaotic home environments, persistent unemployment, drugs, crime. Just as business entrepreneurs have helped cure the British economic disease, so social entrepreneurs can help cure Britain’s social malaise…. They are vehicles of innovation"
David Cameron, Prime Minister
"The really encouraging thing was it wasn’t the same old faces participating, it was new groups, new people who’d never been involved in the community activities that have been traditionally supported in the borough"
Local Govt. Officer
"Initially there was some doubt as to what could be achieved - but we are starting to see some fantastic outcomes in the community from the model of work that RE:generate use. This is a model of community building and empowerment that we could well use in several other communities across our authority area"
