Community Interest Company
The way we do business is very important to us which is why we set ourselves up as a social enterprise. Officially, we are known as The Wee Retreat CIC (Community Interest Company).
CICs are designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. We run our business to make a profit which we can then use to help us meet our social & community aims. To put it bluntly, doing business this way means that the more money we make, the more good we can do.
Our social mission is to create a culture where self-care is as normal/ordinary as brushing your teeth. We believe that if everyone looks after themselves properly, they will be happier within themselves and the world will be a happier place.
We aim to achieve this by:
-Making wee retreats as accessible as possible
-Partnering with other organisations who work with vulnerable members of our society to support them in supporting their communities well-being
-Educating people in the importance of self-care
-Reducing stigma/barriers to self-care
