About Us

Creating Enterprise was established in April 2015 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association.

Creating Enterprise has two parts, covering Property Services on the commercial side and People Services with our Employment Academy.

We provide Property Services such as painting and decorating, fencing, maintenance, and facility management for Cartrefi Conwy properties and other clients in the public and private sectors.

Our Employment Academy gives unemployed Cartrefi Conwy tenants opportunities for paid work with on-the-job training, employment support and qualifications. We also offer volunteering opportunities and job search support to help tenants find work.


Why Creating Enterprise?

Creating Enterprise is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association.

A consultation with tenants found that:

  • 59% said they had been unable to remain in employment within the first year, for a variety of reasons
  • 23% felt there was not enough help locally to find them suitable employment
  • 75% said they would volunteer if it might lead to a full time job

Creating Enterprise was established to respond to the need for skills, training, support and employment for tenants who are unemployed.
