Client: Creating Enterprise
Creating Enterprise is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association. The organisation was set up as a Social Enterprise providing a wide range of property maintenance activity to both private and public sector, reinvesting profits to give those furthest from the job market workplace opportunities.
