The Jericho Foundation is a charity which breaks down barriers in society and supports marginalised individuals to become fulfilled, skilled and employed. Jericho works with a broad variety of disadvantaged people who are struggling including young people, ex-offenders, homeless people, survivors of modern slavery and those with complex needs.

Jericho provides employment, apprenticeships, work experience and volunteering opportunities in eight eco-friendly social enterprises. Alongside this, Jericho delivers a holistic package of support, mentoring and training which is tailored to each client’s personal needs.

Since 1993, Jericho has supported over 7,000 individuals and over 70% of beneficiaries to find sustainable employment and economic independence, enabling them to end any dependency on benefits and become an inclusive and integrated part of their local community.

Our social enterprises are part of a network of around 70,000 social enterprises in the UK contributing over £24bn to the economy. By reinvesting their profits back into the business or the local community, when a social enterprise profits – society profits.
