Break Barriers. Build People.
Once upon a time (120 years ago to be exact!), Sherbrooke Road was a hive of entrepreneurship, with a dairyman, a dress maker, a cow keeper and a coal merchant among the businesses keeping our Carrington triangle going in Nottingham.
Double T are attempting to revive the street's industrious past by opening up The Coach House as a space for members of the community to come and gain the skills and confidence to thrive in the modern world of work.
Hamish and Annabel Elliott (pictured) founded Double T, a local property development and property management enterprise with an ethical difference, in March 2014. Double T re-invests all profits in to supporting young unemployed people to find and sustain meaningful employment.
We provide end-to-end property development and management services through which we provide a range of opportunities for unemployed people to develop their skills and build their confidence to find meaningful and sustainable employment.
Annabel Elliott Co-Founder
Annabel has worked in the heritage sector for more than 15 years. She specialises in community engagement, mental health issues and partnership development. Annabel has successfully designed and managed numerous projects, often with ambitious targets, which have informed her leadership of Double T's youth-led project Back in My Day. Annabel is responsible for creating innovative ways of engaging people and ensuring everyone has a positive experience with Double T.
"Thanks for making me feel so welcome Annabel! You clearly have a great way of working with the community"
Hamish Elliott Co-Founder
Hamish has lived in Nottingham for almost 20 years, and worked in the welfare to work and skills market for more than 15 years. He has designed programmes to support unemployed people for some of the country's leading providers, and has attracted more than £500 million in public funding to develop his designs. Within Double T, Hamish establishes trusting relationships with clients, who depending on their level of need are guided towards achieving their goals and finding meaningful employment.
Passionate about his local community, Hamish also volunteers his time to support positive development in his local area of Carrington and visits local schools to inspire younger people to fullfill their potential and encourage social responsibility in business.
"Hamish does make me feel more confident. He's just good at what he does"
