Founded in 2002, Phoenix Enterprises is both a charity and a social enterprise. Each year we provide a vital safety net for over 100 vulnerable adults in Swindon with mental health issues, learning difficulties and physical disabilities. Their challenges range from Autism, Asperger’s and Downs Syndrome to depression and anxiety.
Phoenix enriches lives by building employability skills. We provide all our people with holistic day-to-day support in our structured production environment. We improve confidence, morale, life and employability skills, mental and physical health.
We do packaging and hand-assembly jobs for other businesses, who add to their social value by paying us a commercial rate. This income covers around 40% of our costs, the balance coming from fundraising and grants.
Through our support and work experience, and our work with local employers, we aim to remove barriers to social and financial inclusion.
