Social Enterprise

Our intention is to ensure our services are available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

We are a trading company needing to earn income from the provision of services, however our purpose is about the improvement of well being and fulfilment rather than making money.

Our social purpose is fulfilled in the following ways:

  • We will invest 50% of trading profits, or 10% of our turnover whichever is the greater, to providing services at a subsidised or nil rate.
  • We will invest 5% of our income to causes or organisations that could benefit from stronger finances
  • We will offer time, without charge, to people or organisations who share our purpose and values that could not afford to use our services on a commercial basis
