Enterprise at its social best

From award-winning sustainable furniture to a chain of cafes, our social enterprise businesses are changing people’s lives – as well as having a positive impact on the communities they serve.

We have six social businesses in Suffolk that make and sell a diverse range of products and provide a range of business services.

From delicious scones and muffins - baked daily by our catering staff - to the vegetables grown and picked for sale every week by our horticultural team, all of our enterprises offer a range of employment opportunities to adults with disabilities and disadvantages.

These are real jobs designed around an individual’s experience and abilities. We also offer experience of a work environment and therapeutic placements, of which there are more than 170 currently.

All the profits generated by Realise Futures’ six social enterprises – based in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Woodbridge and Felixstowe - get ploughed back into the business to create more jobs and learning opportunities.
