Clarity Social Enterprise is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee that brings together experienced charity managers, exceptional entrepreneurs and a large pool talented people who between them speak most of the major languages in the world.
We are a company with big ideas for improving the world through our aims to:
- generate a profit that can be used to benefit refugees and asylum seekers in the UK;
- improve the quality of life for refugees and asylum seekers in the UK
- provide opportunities for refugee and asylum seekers.
Clarity is a not for profit organisation – which means all our income and profit shall be applied solely towards meeting our aims and if we close the business then any assets that remain after the payment of debts and liabilities, will be transferred to not-profit-distributing institutions with similar aims, or given as a donation to a charity with similar aims.
You don’t have to be a refugee to work with us – but we hope you’ll share our vision for improving the lives of people who have had to flee persecution.
Clarity is initially focussing on providing a quality interpreting service.
Life’s hard if you can’t speak the local language. You can struggle with your shopping, you can’t talk to the teacher about your children’s achievements, you can’t chat to your neighbours and it’s easy to feel lost.
Most people can get by with the little English they learn, but what if your life depends on it. What if you need to talk to your doctor about your health? What if you need to talk to your solicitor to explain why your fled torture in your country? What if you’re about to be evicted? What if your child is sick?
In situations like these clarity and understanding are critical. That’s why interpreting is so vital.
Check back here regularly and see how our plans are progressing – and remember that if you’re an interpreter you can register now for work with Clarity.
