bemix is a social enterprise. This means we are a business that tries to improve communities, people’s life chances and the environment. Any money we make is re-invested into our work and local communities.

A social business is set up in response to a local need to create good quality jobs for people disadvantaged in the workplace. The aim of a social business is to make a profit so that people who find it hard to get into and stay in work can have that opportunity.

The working conditions, pay, hours and duration of contracts should be the same for both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged people working in the business.

Social businesses are committed to making sure that the workplace is as fair and equal as possible for all employees and that everyone has an equal chance to contribute meaningfully.

As a social enterprise, we run several smaller social businesses - find out more
