A GOVERNMENT minister visiting a medical and community centre in London's East End this week has praised a 'cutting edge' organisation helping people run their own businesses.

Third Sector Minister Phil Hope looked in on Tuesday at the Bromley-by-Bow centre that houses and supports 22 businesses.

The centre was "a fantastic example of social enterprise" with services to meet the needs of the entire community, he said.

Businesses helped by the centre include a hairdresser's salon, florists, bike repair workshop, a cleaning company and a café.

The centre is run by Dr Sam Everington, who helped develop the project and works as a GP there.

He is a social enterprise ambassador-one of just over 30 in the country who promote the use of business to tackle social problems.
