The Peepul Centre

Produced and Directed by GovEd's managing director Ravi Kapur, this 25 minute film was commissioned by DfES and the Home Office to highlight the challenges faced by third sector organisations in raising capital funding from local agencies, and ways of improving cross-agency coordination. Shown to audiences from multiple departments and agencies, this film has proved to be a highly effective training and discussion tool in Whitehall and beyond.

The film tells the story of the ten-year struggle by community innovators to raise funds for the unique Peepul Centre community facility in Leicester, and the further challenges they faced once funding had been pledged from multiple sources.
