Crest Cooperative Ltd

Crest Cooperative Ltd was established in 1998. The aim of the original project was to establish a community cooperative to help disabled and unemployed people increase their skills and gain employment – either within the Cooperative or to move onto sustainable employment within the community.

The project ran for 3 years and at the end of the project the co-operative became a ‘Not For Profit Limited Company.’ A further lottery application was granted for the co-operative to develop vocational training courses, to help disadvantaged people who had become socially excluded to gain life skills, as well as real work experience, in a supported environment.  The co-operative established two community businesses, within which the training could be delivered.

Over the following five years the company evolved and saw the potential for the social sector to deliver recycling services – as this was likely to be a growth area for businesses within the UK.  Taking into consideration legislation that was being introduced in Wales to make recycling mandatory, Crest Co-operative developed three new enterprises all with recycling themes, with the ultimate aim of becoming a self-sustaining social enterprise, but at the same time taking care not to lose its original ethos of working with and supporting disadvantaged individuals.
