The Calico Group: innovative businesses and charities 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.
The Calico Group difference:
• Bringing different parts of our group together for maximum social impact - creating innovative, new opportunities for the benefit of the community.
• Harnessing the strengths of our unique group structure - bringing together the widest possible range of expertise.
• Succeeding within private and public markets - delivering cost-effective, sustainable services, with profits returning to the communities we serve.
