The support provided by each of our social enterprises is unique, both in what they offer to people who use the service and in what they offer to their local community.

Each enterprise is designed with the needs and desires of the community in mind and models are flexible to allow services to respond to changing local landscapes.

Some of the examples listed below are social enterprises in the traditional sense, selling products and services with profits reinvested into the service or the wider organisation; others defy neat classification, but provide unique social value to their communities.
