Shop for Change
Shop for Change brings you high quality gifts and treats that are imaginative as well as exclusive.
Better still, they are produced by social enterprises – businesses that are changing the world for the better. All profits from social enterprises go towards achieving their social or environmental objectives, rather than being distributed to shareholders. In fact, Digbeth and its neighbouring areas have the highest number of social enterprises in the whole country!
iSE launched Shop for Change in July 2010 after a survey of third sector organisations revealed that 35% of social enterprises did not buy any goods or services at all from within the third sector. Shop for Change was born to enable the sector to do more to support itself.

Shop for Change is just one of the many ways in which iSE is supporting the growth and development of the social enterprise sector and raising awareness of its role in changing lives and communities. Based in Digbeth, iSE has been working with social enterprises for over ten years. To find out more visit www.i-se.co.uk.
