Jericho Foundation Launches Social Enterprise e-Commerce Site

The Jericho Foundation breaks down barriers in society and supports disadvantaged people to become fulfilled, skilled and employed. We work with a broad variety of deprived people who are struggling – young people, ex-offenders, homeless people and victims of modern slavery. We provide work experience or paid employment in our socially-valuable social enterprises. Alongside this, we deliver a holistic package of support, guidance and training which is tailored to each client’s personal needs.

You can, therefore, obtain high quality goods and services for your organisation at competitive rates, while supporting our range of environmentally-friendly enterprises run by The Jericho Foundation.

A social enterprise trades to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. It makes money from selling goods and services in the open market, but reinvesting the profits back into the business or the local community. And so when they profit, society profits.

The Jericho eShop is now live and available on the Jericho website selling environmentally-friendly products for use by consumers and businesses. At first we will be concentrating on delivering high quality cleaning supplies, so companies can order their janitorial stocks on-line (to complement our contract cleaning services). Eventually we plan to have many different products for sale at competitive rates.

By purchasing items from Jericho, not only will you get a great product at a good price, you will also help the charity to deliver social value and support local people back into work.

Additionally, any profits raised by The Jericho eShop will be ploughed directly back into the local community by The Jericho Foundation and fund all of our work with apprentices, survivors of human trafficking and other disadvantaged people facing barriers to employment. All donations and purchases enable us to offer long-term support to many in need.

Finally, we are extremely proud to have recently been awarded the Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility.  To find out more, please visit our website.
