Grace Enterprises

Started by Grace Church in 2017, Grace Enterprises is in the business of changing lives!

The Grace Enterprises Family

Grace Enterprises aims to grow a network of sustainable, commercially competitive and socially responsible businesses that help reduce long-term unemployment and poverty in Nottingham.

 

Our purpose is to create supportive, paid jobs for people who face significant barriers to work. Our teams include ex-offenders, ex-homeless, ex addicts, people who have suffered domestic abuse and who have struggled with mental health.

 

Our first business is a Social Enterprise cleaning company called Radiant Cleaners. It has won national recognition for helping over 50 people into employment and paying them the Real Living Wage.
