The Healthy Hub Creates Jobs for People with Mental Illnesses

— January 13, 2011 — Social Good
Registered as a community interest company (CIC), the Healthy Hub, located in Lincoln, England, is many things. All together, the social enterprise operates a café, a restaurant, a wholefood store, a gift store, a therapy room, conference spaces, a thrift shop, office spaces and training services, which all show that it stays true to its name as a “hub.” On top of all of this, the Healthy Hub provides opportunities to those with mental health issues, physical disabilities and/or those who are economically disadvantaged due to pervading social stigmas.

Company Directors Rebecca Dray and Roger Moors and General Manager Kara Moore work to ensure that the Healthy Hub runs like a traditional commercial business, while staying true to the social and environmental spirit that originated the company in the first place. This starts by hiring people who have difficulty finding jobs in the mainstream employment industry, but it also includes promoting a healthy lifestyle through their products and commercial initiatives. The Healthy Hub’s cuisine is made from fresh, local, organic and fair trade foods. Some of their specialties include banoffee pie and butterbean bake. The newest café/bar, located at the Lincoln Drill Hall, offers a laid-back mood where you can eat great-tasting and good-for-you food, all while surfing the net for free.

Since its inception in 2008, The Healthy Hub has proved to not only be a place of work, but also a community for those who are often left out of mainstream employment and social relations.
