It’s about more than profit.


The eScalate programme, funded through the European Regional Development Fund, supported SMEs that are social enterprises, social entrepreneurs, enterprising charities and other purposeful businesses committed to enabling positive social and environmental impact.

Its aim was to help organisations in this sector strengthen their contribution to their communities and to the local economy.

Your actions may help to tackle social problems, improve people’s life chances, provide training and employment opportunities for those furthest from the market, support communities and help the environment.

Whether your purpose for good is economical, social, environmental or a combination of the three, we want to help you in your mission and see your business thrive.

Despite the eScalate programme coming to a close, we can still offer you fantastic support – get in touch with us today!
