Corporate social responsibility and social enterprise are often seen as different ends of a spectrum – ranging from what the good corporations can do alongside their business to the impact at the core of social enterprises’ trading activities. But what if you could double your money? Getting more for your investment is always seen as a good thing – work with Calman Trust and see this happen for your organisation.
Calman Trust is busy building businesses that can support their training and charitable activitites with young people, both by providing opportunities for them and by generating income. We do this because we see these young people as future contributors to society rather than numbers to be “got into work or full time education”.
Our businesses can provide services to your organisation – when you use our Artysans’ catering for your event you get CSR benefits with no extra cost to your organisation. We have the ability to make bespoke promotional goods locally enabling you to be part of the creative process and the community. Then Ness Soaps can provide you with environmentally friendly soap products – in a way you can “wash” your brand with great impact in supporting young people and the environment. Finally Café Artysans is well positioned for a meal or quick coffee in the town centre. All these services help Calman Trust help young people and do not cost you extra budget – leaving the corporate social responsibility money to be used in other ways. Perhaps sponsoring a “Top Apprentice” award at Calman?
As a business based in the Highlands, your organisation cares about the strength of the local community. A stronger community provides you with better employees, more customers and future business. Working with Calman Trust enables you to build a stronger community and get a great return on your budget without spending extra.
