Hope Enterprises: using business to improve society and the lives of individuals in need

Hope Enterprises Community Interest Company or CiC, offers training and work opportunities in a range of small businesses, to people affected by homelessness, drugs, alcohol, poverty, mental health and other disadvantage.

We have been re-accredited for a further 3 years from Nov 2017 by the Social Enterprise Quality Mark

Our Philosophy

Read about our vision of social enterprise and the pathway from Hope Centre into Hope Enterprises. We believe a social enterprise should not just be about profit, but should:

  • Benefit individuals who work within it to offer them training, opportunities and support
  • Benefit the wider community, especially people in need, by producing something valuable or socially useful
  • Be produced in such a way that benefits society (including the environment)
