The Calico Group: innovative charities and businesses working together to make social profit, rather than financial profit, the driving force behind our wide range of high quality services.

We define “social profit” as the positive difference we make to people’s lives, across all the communities in which we work.

We create social profit by developing innovative services, and harnessing the opportunities of our unique group structure.

Here’s how:

  • We’re bringing different parts of our group together for maximum social impact – We can combine our growing range of complementary services to create innovative, new opportunities for the benefit of the community.
  • We’re harnessing the strengths of our unique group structure – The Calico Group brings together the widest possible range of expertise: from our motivated service users, to our stakeholders who come from commercial, public and not-for-profit sectors.
  • We’re succeeding within private and public markets – Working together, the Calico Group delivers cost-effective, sustainable services, with profits returning to the communities we serve.
