Forth Valley Enterprise C.I.C (FVE)
Forth Valley Enterprise C.I.C. was established in 2012 by a couple dedicated to make a positive difference in their community. Apart from the small staff team, FVE also has a group of dedicated volunteers, who very generously give their time.
The main aim of FVE is to develop and manage a number of services and projects, which will benefit the local community of Falkirk and surrounding areas. FVE wants to provide services which are tailored to the local needs and answer a real need.
The first two services established are a Community Cafe and a Catering service.
Both services offer training and employment opportunities to local people, especially those who are disadvantaged in the labour market. Participation in the training will help people learn transferable skills, improve their confidence, offer them a chance to gain work experience and make a difference to their local community.
The cafe offers a platform for local artists to display their work for sale. This includes all types of art – photography, paintings, jewellery, music and so on.
FVE is run on a not for profit basis. The money raised through the cafe and catering service is used to cover the considerable running costs of the services. Once the organisation is in the enviable position of having profits that are not needed to further develop the services, the surplus will be donated to local community projects and organisations.
