About Cae Post

Cae Post recycling homepageCae Post is an innovative social enterprise based in Powys, providing waste management and recycling services across mid-Wales and north Shropshire.

Cae Post believes that employment and access to work are central to how people see themselves and that people with a range of disabilities, or who are disadvantaged in the labour market, should be given the same opportunity of contributing to their community through work.

We are a business just like any other but, as a social enterprise, the income we generate helps us fulfil our objectives to give everyone a chance to be part of the working world. We have been involved in this work for over 30 years and by purchasing our services or products, you are helping us to meet our objectives.

Who we help

Society writes off a vast number of individuals as having nothing to contribute. This includes those with any form of disability; those who have been in trouble and convicted of a crime; those who have been addicted to alcohol or drugs, both illegal and prescribed; those that suffer from mental illness; those 18 to 24 year olds not in education, employment or training, and in fact anyone that society judges not to meet “the norm”.

We believe that by promoting the many individual achievements our beneficiaries make, Cae Post can help to create a more inclusive image for all those who are disadvantaged.

Our people

Cae Post Trustees

Cae Post has a management committee all of whom are volunteers and have an interest in its aims and a commitment to seeing the work succeed. Because of Cae Post’s legal structure – it is both a company and a charity – they are both trustees and directors and have responsibilities under both headings.

The environment and climate change

Recycling has become a commonplace but when Cae Post started its recycling operation over fifteen years ago, many waste products and those made of plastic were going to landfill.

Cae Post and the Robert Owen Community Banking Fund

Cae Post has invested some of its surplus in the Robert Owen Community Banking Fund, to help support new and expanding local businesses in Powys.
