Use your Purchasing Power Wisely and #BuySocial to Support #SocialSaturday

 SE_BRAND_APPROVED_CMYKThe 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 with complex needs, ex-offenders, homeless people and survivors of human trafficking.

We provide work experience or paid employment in our eight environmentally-friendly social enterprises. Alongside this, we deliver a holistic package of support, guidance and training which is tailored to each client’s personal needs.

Social enterprises trade to tackle social problems and improve communities, people’s life chances or the environment. Ours 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.

Social enterprises provide high quality products and services, while providing strong social and environmental value to businesses as well as individuals. By buying from social enterprises organisations are unleashing the potential of their buying spend to create long-term sustainable value.

Social Saturday is taking place on 15 October. It is a UK-wide day of activity to celebrate and raise awareness of British social enterprises. Social Saturday is all about encouraging people to buy from social enterprises, businesses that put people and planet first. Unleash your spending power and make a difference!

Our social enterprises offer a range of products and services and include:

  • Construction
  • Landscape
  • Catering
  • Cleaning
  • Recycling
  • Wood Recycling
  • Print
  • ReUsers
  • First Aid
  • Co-Working at The Loft Workspace
  • And our brand new eShop

Obviously, any profits raised by Jericho are ploughed directly back into the local community by Jericho Foundation and fund all of our work with disadvantaged people facing barriers to employment. All donations and purchases enable us to offer long-term support to many in need.
