The Bromley by Bow Centre developed along business principles: identify a need, and then work to fulfil that need. The fact that these needs - such as a safe, pleasant park for children to play in – had gone unmet for so long in Bromley by Bow presented challenges, but it also presented opportunities.
Along the way, we helped to define the term social enterprise ... enterprise for a social purpose.
There are a number of social enterprises based at the Bromley by Bow Centre. These are sustainable businesses and foster a spirit of enterprise across the community, and generate profits that are re-invested back in order to promote social benefit.
Community Remedies offers tours and seminars at the Centre, and consultancy services.
Sparrow Design is a graphic design agency that specialises in producing distinctive, high quality work.
Signs of Life works with young people to design and create public art and installations.
Choose one of our social enterprises as your next supplier and you will find original products, excellent value, top quality service and a passion for pleasing our customers.
We have also, through our Beyond Business programme, helped to expand social enterprise out into the community, backing local entrepreneurs to set up their own successful businesses.
