Why we are different

Our social enterprise is not simply helping people to open small businesses and get employed; but simultaneously enabling better community integration. We are different because:

  • We offer a free initial advice
  • We promote and working together to nurture employment/self-employment which capitalizes up on refugee’s prior skills and knowledge, income generation, language acquisition, and community integration. 
  • Our service is based on a well researched project with an overall social return on investment (SROI) of £1: £4.06.
