Our Impact

As a Social Enterprise we exist, not only to deliver our brilliant support and services, but to do it in a way that makes a difference to the people and places we work with and in – we call it our “Positive Change”.

We have an ambition to operate profitably as any other business would. The difference is we commit to reinvest or gift 100% of our profits to charity every year so we can make even more Positive Change.

We measure our success by the Positive Change we make in three key areas:

  • Social, digital and financial inclusion

  • Breaking down barriers and creating access to work

  • Having a positive impact in Bolton

Social Impact 2019 – 20:
Positive Change Really does Start with you!

We’re so excited by the Positive Change we were able to make in 2019-20. Our short animated Social Impact Report covers the highlights of what we achieved last year. We really hope you will take a look and enjoy it!
