The Edinburgh Candle Company trains unemployed women around the city of Edinburgh to make soy-wax candles. In addition to selling candles, we run a one-on-one mentorship scheme, providing a platform for the women to gain confidence, transferable skills and a sense of community. We also fund any extra educational training such as IT or English language courses to aid the transition of these women to get back into long-term employment or start their own business ventures.

Palma Soap

Palma Soap sells natural, handmade soap with scents including Lavender and Honey, Lemongrass and Eucalyptus, as well as festive scents, such as Cinnamon Swirl and Apple Spice.

The ultimate aim for our project is to tackle the harsh ramifications of malaria with an affordable and novel preventative method. 

Palma Soap is a social enterprise which empowers communities in Malawi, who are badly affected by malaria. Production of the soap, which contains the natural ingredient neem oil to repel mosquitoes, provides practical production skills, as well as entrepreneurial knowledge for those who make it.

JCADE Clothing and events

JCADE is committed to raising awareness for mental health within sport, through both the hosting of events and selling t-shirts.

Our athletic t-shirts support these events and feature the slogan ‘Set Free’, made out of high quality materials ideal for playing sports, going to the gym and spreading the message of good mental health in sports.
