We are pleased to announce that Apax is now a registered social enterprise, under Social Enterprise UK, which promotes and supports social enterprises across the UK. Social enterprises are businesses that change the world for the better and Social Enterprise UK is the national body for social enterprises. It represents its members, including private businesses, charities and public sector organisations, to support and help grow the social enterprise movement. As a registered social enterprise, Apax receives advice, support, consultancy services and training events, all of which help us maintain the high quality of our services to our residents and ensure that we are maximising the social impact of our work so that every one of our stakeholders and community neighbourhood receive the level attention and care that they truly deserve.
Apax has also been recognised as a member of Voluntary Action Lewisham, which works to develop the capacity of the voluntary and community sector in the Borough and to promote community empowerment and engagement in Lewisham. It supports member organisations like Apax with IT, accountancy, payroll, research and other administrative help, such that we can continue to improve our office administration to respond effectively to all our resident’s needs and play fulfil its role as a voluntary organisation. We are thrilled to join Social Enterprise UK and Voluntary Action Lewisham to gain valuable support from these organisations and add value what we do and how we deliver it.
