BUILDING SOCIAL FIRMS
Yes2Ventures is a Social Firm development agency based in Sheffield. For close to 20 years, it has been creating employment and training opportunities for people who are disadvantaged in the labour market.
Successful projects include Yes2Work, a New Deal for Disabled People job broker; Viewpoint Research, a telephone-based research service; Buster’s Coffee Company, which boasted cafés in Doncaster, Leeds, and Sheffield; and a successful Travel Support service.
Whether you are looking to re-enter the labour market, want to learn new skills, or just need some help overcoming some of the barriers that are holding you back from doing what you want to do, Yes2Ventures might be able to help you.
