We are delighted to announce that Pelham House has now officially become a Social Enterprise.
What is a Social Enterprise?
Social Enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. Like traditional businesses they aim to make a profit but it’s what they do with their profits that sets them apart.
Instead of paying their profits out to shareholders, Social Enterprises reinvest their profits back into their business or the local community.
This allows them to tackle social problems, improve people’s life chances, provide training and employment opportunities, support communities and help the environment.
What does this mean for Pelham House?
Here at Pelham House we have a clear mission to improve the quality of life of people living with dementia through training, creating better environments and developing an outstanding approach to person-centred dementia care.
We are thankful to the community for their amazing support over the past year through what can only be described as some of the hardest times we have all faced.
Becoming a Social Enterprise is a positive development for Pelham House and one that leaves us feeling truly excited about the future.
