Aurora Options Starts New Social Enterprise

Wednesday 5th November 2014

Aurora Options is inviting service users to take part in a new social enterprise that will create and sell environmentally-friendly cleaning products. Service users will be involved in the initial stages of planning – from choosing how products look and smell to the best ways to market them to local businesses. Training will be given so that they learn many of the aspects of running a business.

Madeline Alterman, Social Enterprise Coordinator, says, “This is a fantastic opportunity for service users to learn how a business works and be part of a creative team. We already employ service users as cleaners and now we are expanding this to create our own brand of cleaning products that will be safe to use and environmentally-friendly.”
