There’s more to the Community Shop project than meets the eye

You may know the Community Shop in West Ealing Broadway but do you know about Accession Social Enterprise?


The Community Shop in West Ealing

Accession is a Community Interest Company that trades to tackle social problems, improve communities and people’s life chances. Accession manages social enterprise businesses across West London which provide sustainable pathways into the job market by developing business enterprises that survive and flourish in the mainstream economy, based on viable and commercial business models, and not reliant on grant funding. Accession offers employment opportunities, training, volunteering and personal development to those who are economically marginalised, prominent amongst this group are people who have learning difficulties including those on the autistic spectrum and people with enduring mental health needs.

Accession is not a clinical or social care service and does not offer therapeutic activity or respite care. Accession operates on a belief that people with mental health needs and people with learning difficulties are able to work.
