Stuart Fraser: The Unsociable Social Entrepreneur explores the life of local chef Stuart Fraser, 24. In 2016, he founded Sourced in Salford, a community interest company which has since become an award winning enterprise.

His Friday night supper club has become a hit in Broughton due to its £2 entry fee per person, restaurant-standard decor and food. The initiative works with FareShare, the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and food waste, to give back to the community in which Stuart grew up.


His latest venture, a new dry bar and café situated in the Salford Lifestyle Centre, aims to encourage the community to come together around food. Stuart said "if we can make this work, we'll be doing amazingly well", joking "success would be if we still exist in six months!"

The documentary represents an exceptional standard of work and reflects Nick’s capability to succeed within the broadcast industry going forward. The work is produced to broadcast quality and meets all of the editorial guidance requirements prescribed. The number of contributors is exceptional with more than fifteen  people having been interviewed and edited as part of the story arc.


This production has been sensitively managed with discussions on Asperger’s and other autistic spectrum issues being explored throughout in an entertaining, informative and interesting way. From conception to final formatting Nick has demonstrated an extraordinary attention to detail, with excellent outcomes. This work represents a very high standard within this cohort and is worthy of high praise.
