A Genuine Social Enterprise


Newsletter 30th August 2023

What makes us a social enterprise?

Ever wondered what a social enterprise is and why we pride ourselves in having leading status in the Uk for fast forward manufacturing? 

In our new Youtube video, FEL’s CEO Jennifer Holloway explains what makes up a successful social enterprise. She quotes ‘A social enterprise is an organisation that puts goods and the ethos at the heart of the company, so we’re not motivated by money or big profits. Any money that is made goes back into the company’

Rising Green careers event Haringey 

Last Thursday, our social media apprentice Jasmin visited the Rising Green careers event in Haringey to promote the amazing opportunities available at Fashion Capital. 

Jasmin-‘ During the event we then had a talk for the mayor of Haringey who gave some encouraging words to many of the young people there as this event ran the same day as the GCSE results day, he was inspiring the youth to be excited about their future no matter what results they got that day and if they are unsure of what to do with their future, they were in the right place to get some knowledge on what to do next. Overall, the event went really well we got a lot of interest; there were people taking leaflets and signing up to get more information about the course and organisations that work with the younger generation wanting to possibly work with us in the future’
