creating for good

Before moving back to the UK, I spent a year in Sri Lanka and South East Asia working with social enterprises and sustainable businesses; organisations striving to create profit with purpose. These enterprises not only benefit the community or the environment, they also provide employment and economic growth in places of need. I offered content creation and graphic design to support them in building their profile.

Having seen the incredible – and fundamental – impact that these enterprises can have overseas, I wanted to continue doing my part for the community in my hometown.

I am now part of OxWise (Oxford Women in Social Enterprise), an incubation support network for women led social enterprises in areas of deprivation. I offer professional photographic services for low-to-no cost, funded by my commercial work. To find out more or to apply for this service, please get in touch.
