About CLARITY & Co.
Our charity, CLARITY & Co. is one of the oldest social enterprises in the UK, founded in 1854. Our purpose of 'enhancing the lives of visually impaired and other disabled people through meaningful employment' has driven all that we have done throughout our 165 year history.
We are one of the very few organisations in the UK working at scale dedicated to enhancing lives of the disadvantaged. We create meaningful permanent or transitional employment for people who struggle to find work many of whom are held by a lack of confidence, skills and self-belief.
We currently employ 105 people of whom 83% have a disability and without CLARITY & Co many, if not all of our disabled staff, would not be in employment today. They would be isolated, lacking in confidence and independence, missing the benefits and camaraderie of work. We demonstrate a cohesive society in action with four sites in the UK and a team that is truly representative of all facets of the UK population.
We fund our employment primarily through the manufacture and sale of our products CLARITY, BECO and the Soap Co.
We formulate and develop the products, and then make and sell them, creating jobs across the Charity, from our visually impaired staff putting a lid on every bottle to those with mental health challenges or learning difficulties in our customer service and sales teams.
All the money we raise through our fundraising goes to support our staff in their employment, development of skills and confidence.
