Lifting people out of poverty

The Wise Group is a leading social enterprise working to lift people out of poverty. As an enterprise, we build bridges to opportunity for the most vulnerable in our society. Our team does this through mentoring support, employment, skills, and energy advice.

Every day we support our customers into jobs, work to lift people out of fuel poverty, and help people coming out of prison to build a better future.  Our work is varied, and underlying everything we do is a passion and commitment for social justice and a fairer society for all.

The Wise Group builds better lives, better communities and stronger businesses, and we don’t do it alone. We work with a range of partners to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of thousands of people and families every year.
