The Colebridge Trust

The Colebridge Trust Ltd. is a not for profit Community and Enterprise Development organisation. Their mission is to build the capacity of Solihull’s borough-wide communities, addressing social, economic and environmental deprivation and improving the life chances of its people. They provide:

  • support, development and representation to the local Voluntary sector
  • front line services in health & well-being and in pre-employment support
  • work experience, training and employment by providing a range of products and services.

The Colebridge Trust joined Roots HR as a client at the end of December 2010. During this time we have worked with them on a number of projects including advising on a restructure and redundancies, recruitment and several other projects.

Charles Rapson, Managing Director of Colebridge Enterprises Ltd says:

“We have been delighted with the support we received from Roots HR in steering us through a difficult restructuring and redundancy process. The Comply package was perfect for our needs and extraordinarily good value for money. The process ran very smoothly. One member of staff affected by the redundancy wrote to thank us for the openness and fairness of the process and our professionalism.

Roots HR staff were on hand and very responsive to questions. What impressed us was the fact that no matter who we spoke to, they seemed completely up to speed with our specific issues. We would heartily recommend Roots HR for their professionalism, ease to work with, understanding, support and value for money.”

Louise Beasley, Director and Lead Consultant of Roots HR CIC says:

“Colebridge Enterprises are a perfect example of the type of organisation who can benefit greatly from accessing external HR support from Roots HR. We provide remote advice and support, via email and telephone, to them on their people management issues, and in the most recent case, they made excellent use of the COMPLY time they purchased. When faced with the difficult decision of making redundancies, by taking advice from us at the critical stages and following a fair and structured process, they ensured that they treated their staff fairly and professionally, whilst hopefully safeguarding the future of the organisation.

We very much look forward to continuing to work with Colebridge Enterprises in the future.”
