Social Care / Social Enterprises

Social Enterprise

Social Enterprises are business ventures whose social purpose is central to their aim.

Anthroposophic inspired social care focuses the integration of the individual in the community through meaningful work.  The work usually takes the form of a nurturing activity such as baking or gardening.  Giving the individual the opportunity to become involved in providing for the community alongside the therapeutic benefits of being hands-on.

A vast variety of Anthroposophic Social Enterprise initiatives exist in the UK and Ireland.  A few include:
