Social Enterprise is business with a heart – greater employment through social businesses means a fairer, more inclusive society. We Make Good was born out of our desire to grow the social enterprise sector in our country, to create many more job opportunities for people from disadvantaged backgrounds, to acknowledge their determination and to embark on a journey together towards a better future.
We started with the idea that things could be better. For some people in Ireland coming from a disadvantaged background, due to ethnicity, disability or time in prison for example, having a job is the goal, but not one that feels achievable.
Our products are designed by some of Ireland’s best emerging designers and made by people facing social challenges who have been supported to develop valuable skills and gain employment in their craft. Becoming a skilled maker means people can change the trajectory of their life and that of their families and communities.
Each product we offer stands for big ideas – hope, opportunity and a belief in each other.
