OUR PARTNERSHIP ETHOS
Collaborate and innovate, not duplicate
Enable was founded in 2014 as a not for profit Social Enterprise. Fundamental to Enable's enterprise model is our innovative, collaborative approach to tackling disadvantage head on, helping solve social issues arising for those who experience significant barriers to getting a job as well as environmental problems caused by computer waste going into landfill.
"Great things can happen from local collaborations"
