About RainbowBiz CIC – A Social Enterprise in Flintshire
RainbowBiz CIC are a social enterprise based in Flintshire, North Wales. Our main purpose is to promote equality and diversity and we do this by:
enabling our volunteers to develop skills | celebrating difference | empowering our volunteers | engaging with the local community
We achieve this by running many community based projects including:
- Digging Deeside, a weekly community gardening project, which offers basic gardening skills but more importantly a safe place to meet like-minded people.
- MBS Festivals, a regular gathering of various alternative therapies, treatments and readers, run by a team of volunteers.
- Arty Folk and Friendship Group, a weekly open group who meet at the RainbowBiz Hippy Shop to utilise the fully equipped craft room with a cuppa and always a friendly welcome.
- RainbowBiz Hippy Shop, is our trading arm which sells ethnic clothing and fair trade goods from a retail outlet in Mold. These premises also offer meeting and treatment rooms, where many groups and sessions take place all year round.
