About social enterprise

What is a social enterprise?

A social enterprise, such as Cae Post, trades to make a profit, just like any other business, but it is how it uses that profit which is important.

Unlike other companies, which use their profits to reward shareholders and investors, a social enterprise reinvests its profits back into the business or uses them to do good in the community.

At Cae Post, we use our income to create work opportunities for people who are disabled or otherwise disadvantaged in the labour market. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity of contributing to their community through work.

All of our customers who use Cae Post to provide their waste management and recycling services are helping us to fulfil our social objectives.

As a social enterprise, Cae Post aims to generate its income by selling goods and services, rather than through grants and donations.

Cae Post is a member of Social Enterprise UK and Social Firms Wales. To find out more about social enterprises and the work they do, please visit the Social Enterprise UK and the Social Firms Wales websites.
