Wellbeing, creativity, innovation: Enterprise

About us: Recovery Enterprises was established in 2012 as the result of an innovative idea from an inspiring group of people who live with mental health conditions. They wanted to work with an organisation who would specialise in helping them to fulfil their ambitions.

We support the development of enterprising ideas, enabling them to flourish into businesses that benefit wellbeing.

We believe that everyone has a talent, or a skill that they can develop or share. We believe that doing things you enjoy helps your wellbeing, and we recognise that this generates skills and ideas that can build great businesses.

How do we do it? We run a central hub which provides support to groups who are looking to develop their enterprising ideas. The Hub offers a range of skills, resources and advice through its networks and from a wonderful team, all keen to help grow great ideas and confidence in abilities.
Recovery Enterprises is a not-for-profit organisation, and all profits made will be reinvested in supporting existing projects or developing new ones.

Enterprising Ideas

Do you, or someone you know have a business idea?

Setting up an enterprise and seeing business ideas come to life is really exciting but can be intimidating. There is no need to ‘go it alone’ if you don’t feel ready.
We are here to help, and we have done much of the hard bit to get you going:

  • Our social enterprise formation (registered as a business with charitable status) actually allows us to help set up businesses to benefit recovery, without you or your group having to go through the tricky process of being registered yourselves when just starting out.
  • We may be able to help you apply for funding to get your idea off the ground.
  • We can support you in developing your business idea, and can connect you with other organisations and support networks with further expertise.
  • To help you further we may be able to provide banking services for voluntary enterprise groups.

Existing Business

Are you a business yourselves? Over their lifetime 1 in 4 members of your workforce will suffer from a mental health condition and you might not even know.

Problems with mental health can affect anyone at any time, and at Recovery Enterprises we are passionate about helping people to recover.

We are looking for corporate supporters, advisors and investors in our enterprises to help us in our aim.

Working with us would demonstrate your investment in the health of people in Sheffield, while helping you to meet your social responsibility goals.
You might be able to support us by offering financial support or advice; you might have a member of staff who could volunteer with us; or maybe you could help us by organising a fundraising event (a great idea for boosting morale within your own team too).  To find out more, contact us about how to get involved.
