2011 Social Entrepreneur Award Winner
At aged just 28, Claire has already set up and sold one business and is now building her second business as a social enterprise: The Mosaic Group. Following a BA in Social work and Welfare Studies, Claire knew that she wanted to run a business enhancing the lives of people with disabilities. Her vision for the Mosaic Group is to offer a modern, robust and professional service that was not only cost effective and affordable but also provided a quality that focused in the individual as a person and not as a disability. She employs 56 people and in 2009 was awarded contracts with both Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Borough Council as one of the key providers for the Government’s Aiming High for Disabled Children Initiative.
