For the Community

The way we do business is very important to us. That’s why we’re a social enterprise. Officially, we’re The Wee Retreat CIC. CIC stands for Community Interest Company.

CICs use their profits and assets for the public good. We run our business to make a profit, which we then use to help us meet our social and community aims. So the more money we make, the more good we’re able to do.

Our social mission is to create a culture where self-care is considered as normal as brushing your teeth. We believe that if we all look after ourselves properly, we’ll all be happier as a result and the world will be a happier place.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Making Wee Retreats as accessible as possible.
  • Partnering with organisations that work with vulnerable people to help them support the wellbeing of their communities.
  • Educating people in the importance of self-care.
  • Reducing barriers to self-care.

Time for You

Time for You is the cornerstone of our social enterprise work. Individuals who would otherwise face barriers in attending The Wee Retreat classes and courses are able to access an online library of recorded wellbeing classes and various live events, classes, and courses.

We work with a variety of third sector organisations to identify and support individuals to sign up and begin using the service.  If you are an organisation or individual who would like more information please get in touch.

Buy-1-Give-1

Organisations that enrol on our Wellbeing at Work programme can help us achieve our social mission through our Buy-1-Give-1 scheme. This service enables us to support organisations that want to improve the wellbeing of their staff but lack the resources to do so. If you’d like to participate as a donor or recipient, please get in touch.
