About

Out Of The Box is a social enterprise producing hand-made individualised high quality items of home decor and fashion accessories by up-cycling materials destined for landfill. We work with people with multiple or complex needs providing training and employment opportunities and enabling them to become ‘job ready’. ​Our beneficiaries include, but are not limited to, prisoners and ex-offenders, people with substance misuse problems, homeless individuals, refugees, victims of domestic violence and long term unemployed and young adults not in education, employment or training. Our profits are re-invested in the business or used to support beneficiaries and charities chosen by the board, as appropriate.
