At Purple Shoots we believe that every individual in any community is unique and valuable and has an individual set of skills and a unique contribution to make.

Unemployment and lack of opportunity wastes these skills, destroys confidence and impoverishes our communities. Our small business loans and self-reliant groups help restore confidence and build capacity amongst individuals and within communities, helping people change their lives and make a difference for themselves.

Our innovative work is transforming lives and changing communities and economies in a long-term sustainable way – but we need support in order to keep doing this and to spread our work further across the UK.
