Our social enterprises.
We operate two social enterprises in order to provide transitional training and employment to people before and after they complete prison or community sentences.
Outwork is our award-winning property maintenance enterprise, delivering financial – and social – value for money services to commercial and domestic clients.
Our hard working Outwork crews operate under an on-site Supervisor, delivering a range of grounds maintenance and cleaning services for individuals and organisations who not only enjoy great service but also know that by contracting Outwork they are helping to tackle barriers to employment.
Our clients include the Belfast International Airport, Springfield Charitable Association, Alpha Housing Association, Transport Training Services and Blairs Caravans, as well as domestic clients.

Big Loop Bikes provides bikes servicing and repair, sale of professionally refurbished bikes, bike leasing schemes for employers and 'Dr Bike' sessions in the community.
Big Loop operates at three locations within Belfast. At our bike shop on the Queen's University campus we provide bike sales, servicing and repair to students, staff and the general public. We also offer bike leasing for students and staff.
At the sustainable travel hub at Cathedral Gardens we provide bike servicing and repair services, and work alongside Sustrans to promote cycling as a sustainable way to move around the city.
At our community workshop in North Street we refurbish bikes for sale through our other outlets, and recycle parts from bikes that can't be refurbished. This circular economy model strengthens Big Loop's contribution to to waste reduction, meaning that we provide a social and environmental return for our customers and supporters.
