What is a Social Firm?

A Social Firm is a business committed to creating employment and training opportunities for people who are furthest from the labour market. It is one form of Social Enterprise, and subscribes to the three values of Enterprise, Employment and Empowerment. Combining commercial orientation with a social mission, Social Firms offer a supportive work place for people who are traditionally discriminated against in terms of gaining employment. Social Firms Wales is committed to the creation of employment opportunities for disabled people and others disadvantaged in the job market, through the development and support of Social Firms in Wales. Social Firms Wales actively supports, promotes and undertakes collaborative working with organisations in all sectors across Wales.

Core Values - Enterprise, Employment & Empowerment

Enterprise

Social Firms are businesses that combine a market opportunity and a social mission. They are businesses that support rather than projects with just an element of trading.
 

Employment

Social Firms are supportive workplaces where the working environment is one that provides all employees with support, opportunity and meaningful work appropriate to their ability.
 

Empowerment

Social Firms are committed to the social and economic integration of disabled and disadvantaged people through employment. A key means to this end is economic empowerment through the payment of market wages to all employees.
