Carlos and Jose met in 2019, when they conceived the idea for a unique organisation. They agreed to develop a methodology to design a new way to effect change, to give easy access to mainstream services to people who are invisible and neglected in society. Thanks to their commitment with the community, engagement and retention strategies, and a strong network of partners, the new model promotes social change by delivering an integral service while running an efficient and innovative ethical business.
Carlos has been working with migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable people for more than 20 years, taking the initiative and engaging with communities with the sole aim of helping them. He has developed an extensive network with the local population in London, especially with the most disadvantaged, as well as with key influencers in the Latin American context. Carlos was born in Colombia where he studied public relations, and has lived in London since 1989.
Jose worked in Latin American markets in the corporate sector for 15 years. He travelled extensively and learned firsthand about the difficult conditions and needs of those forced to leave their countries. He then moved to the UK, where he worked in social enterprise and charity organisations and realised that his real ambition was to run a business with social impact to achieve public goals. Jose was born in Spain where he studied business administration, and has lived in London since 2013.
