Creating Enterprise was established in April 2015 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association.
There are two main operational areas within Creating Enterprise:
- The commercial side of the organisation covers PROPERTY services
- Our Employment Academy covers PEOPLE services
Our property services include painting and decorating, fencing, maintenance and facility management for Cartrefi Conwy properties – but also for other clients in public and private sectors.
Our Employment Academy provides opportunities for unemployed local people, including Cartrefi Conwy tenants, to gain paid work with on-the-job training, employment support and qualifications.
What’s more, we offer volunteering opportunities and job search support to help tenants find work.
In April 2018 we moved from Cartrefi Conwy’s headquarters in Abergele into purpose-built premises, specially designed to accommodate our head office and our training facilities. Our new offices are in a more central location, where people can access our services more easily.
We have received funding from the Social Business Growth Fund, the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and the European Regional Development Fund to help us achieve our goals.
