Our Social Impact.

Changing Lives.

At VIable, we provide professional and approachable business solutions. However, we also are constantly making a Social Impact in all that we do. As a Social Enterprise, 100% of our profits support our Social Mission, trying to create real change in society. 

Our Social Mission.

At VIable, our Social Mission lies in providing profit for Young People in Care, and those from  disadvantaged backgrounds.

Formed in partnership between the Voice of Young People in Care (VOYPIC) and Include Youth, VIable was established to provide expert Back Office solutions for both charities, and organisations across the 3rd Sector and beyond. 

Our Social Impact is wide, with every hour that we commit to any organisation saving time that can be reallocated back to supporting service users in charities, or growing the business impact in Social Enterprises. Moreover, our work with our two shareholder organisations provides solutions that allow their teams to spend more time with young people, changing lives by supporting their development.

Why Young People in Care?

The Social Need.

The amount of young people entering the care system grows each year. Currently in Northern Ireland, there are 3,383 young people in care.

The amount of children in care is currently the highest it has been since the introduction of the Children Order 1995. When a young person enters the care system, it’s often no fault of their own. Across England and Wales, over 60% of young people entering the care system are due to abuse or neglect.

Research suggests that when care experienced children are compared with children who have not been in care, they tend to have poorer outcomes in a number of areas such as educational attainment, mental and physical health.

To challenge that inequality we need drastic change. Change in how business works, and how business supports society. For that reason, VIable support VOYPIC and Include Youth.

Both charities intervene to support and provide opportunities for young people in care, ensuring that they are given equal opportunity to thrive and develop in life.

At VIable, we are on a shared mission with our Shareholders to ensure equality gaps are closed in society, and that no child or young persons’ potential is limited by circumstances outside their control.

Here are some key statistics in Northern Ireland, highlighting the growth and need to support young people in care across our communities.
