'People Can' Focuses on Building Strong Communities

Launched in October of last year, People Can used to be known as Novas Scarman, and stems from a 2008 partnership between Scarman Trust, Path National and Novas Overtures.

"Our services address issues including domestic abuse, homelessness, offending and help to build stronger communities," the charity and social enterprise writes on their Facebook page. "We help fund our work through our own social enterprises and we also support people to campaign and speak out about the issues affecting them."

The actual services range from employment training and campaigning to community support and advocacy initiatives. Because People Can is part charity and part social enterprise, their revenue-generating projects include an arts and entertainment venue, translation services and training products, which create an independent source to further invest in the communities that matter.
