Added social value when you partner with Your Own Place CIC
- Lived Experience – As a social enterprise, 100% of our profit goes back into our mission. We self-fund our very own Advisory Board (YOPAB) – comprising people with lived experience. This means that not only do all trainees have the opportunity to join YOPAB, but YOPAB informs our delivery, accessibility and quality of impact.
- Jobs – With 50% of new jobs obtained through people we know, having a network of people around us isn’t just great for wellbeing, isolation and inter-dependence, but for hearing of new opportunities to volunteer, gain new skills and move closer to work.
- Digital Skills – It’s never been more important to equip people with digital knowledge, skills and confidence. Whether commissioning us for face to face or digital workshops, we now include digital skills.
- Reducing Isolation – We now know that isolation is a killer and many people found themselves very isolated during the pandemic. From creating WhatsApp groups, to meeting their neighbours for the first time and forming a woman’s support group, our workshops are proven to bring people together.
