Whitehouse Enterprises

Whitehouse Enterprises is a dynamic Ipswich based Social Enterprise, designed and built by Suffolk County Council in 1980. The purpose of the enterprise is to help people with disabilities and other disadvantages to work into meaningful and sustainable employment.  The enterprise enables individuals to gain enough skills and confidence to move back out into the open labour market, with assistance to overcome barriers where required.   

Alongside the emphasis on employment provision there is also a commercial business ethos and Whitehouse Enterprises is emerging from the County Council into an independent trust.  The core elements of the business are being expanded and re-modelled into satellite enterprises, which now include: Creative Sign Solutions and Created for You Catering, as well as the business areas of outdoor rural and urban furniture, light engineering, electrical assembly, contract packing and document scanning and collating (This is mainly carried out on a sub-contract basis). 

Whitehouse Enterprises is an approved provider of disability and disadvantage related employment services for Jobcentre Plus and the Department for Work and Pension and a supplier to numerous local and national commercial business partners.
