“Lots of companies talk about making a difference, but few build it so deliberately into the core of their organisation. Xander are focused on changing the employment landscape for individuals with disabilities, and their dedicated support for these important social enterprises will allow us to drive change across society.

Inclusion Revolution

Inclusion Revolution is a movement that aims to raise awareness, change perspectives, and open doors for physically and neurologically diverse people.

To tackle this global movement, our Associates were split into two teams, one to design an accessible questionnaire that would gain insight into how our society perceives diversity in the workplace, and the other team to build it for mass distribution.

Although we are starting in the UK, our ambition is to build the foundations of inclusion world-wide, so that we can nurture it for future generations.

Diversity

“Its been great to work with Xander on such an amazing project and we are making a real difference. I have enjoyed working with the team in developing this project and everyone has worked extremely hard on it. I have enjoyed every second I have spent with them.”

Ignition Brewery

Ignition Brewery is a South London brewery and taproom that trains and employs individuals with learning difficulties to brew great beer.

Also known as ‘the Brewery Bunch’, our Xander Associates have supported Ignition with laying the groundwork for the opening of a second site in Liverpool by conducting a comprehensive product, service and risk analysis and developing a location strategy.

The initiative has already been successful in securing the cooperation of Liverpool City Council and has led to initial discussions with Mencap and Sefton Council for future collaborations such as an ‘Ignition Day’ at Mencap’s new diverse space in Merseyside.

“Ignition Brewery has been delighted to have the pro-bono support of a team of Xander associates to help us in our mission to open a not-for-profit brewery in Liverpool. A bright, energetic and effective team have created the tools we need – such as financial models and geographic searches – whilst also encouraging us to secure our goal of creating more jobs for people with learning disabilities through the sale of great beer.”
