Social enterprises and opportunity

EVE Trades is a Community Interest Company that incorporates nine social enterprises and two training facilities.

ET logo Grey RGBAll of EVE Trade’s businesses are committed to providing excellent quality products and services, maintaining their professional standing and committing to their ethical and social mission. From former rough sleepers and offenders to recovering drug users and the long-term unemployed, many of the people we work with find themselves at the back of the employment queue. EVE Trades helps them by: 

  • Providing opportunities where they did not exist before
  • Providing vital training and skills
  • Providing a reference and work history
  • Building confidence and self esteem
  • Improving the public perception of vulnerable client groups

Details of all the EVE Trades social enterprises can be found below. Why not see what they can do for you or your business and purchase ethically and with social responsibility from EVE Trades.

Our social enterprises allow us to offer opportunities where few existed before – to give employment and training choices to those who, for a variety of reasons, have been excluded from the conventional employment market. We give people opportunities they probably would not have had otherwise. To see people making the most of those opportunities and really flourishing is hugely satisfying to us all."
