Beanstalk Business Centre CIC is passionate about helping businesses become stronger, sustainable, and profitable. We offer business support and administration services to entrepreneurs, start-ups, not-for-profits, and SMEs.  We recognise that small businesses are the backbone of local communities; they provide character and individuality that reflect a town’s personality. Business owners and employees usually live and work within their communities. Building successful businesses create a thriving local economy with local jobs and strong community bonds.

Simultaneously,  we provide employment and work experience opportunities, with job coaching and pastoral support for people looking for employment.  We invest all profits towards our employment programmes.  We develop workshops, courses, and tutorials that leave people empowered by knowledge, tools, and newfound confidence, ready to take those first steps towards a meaningful career. Returning to work is intimidating, so we build a person-centric training strategy where individuals become accustomed to the world of work in a safe, inclusive, and empowering environment.


Beanstalk Business Centre CIC won our Start Up Social Enterprise of the Year award in 2022.

About Us


It’s what we’ve been doing since 1886, in one form or another!

We passionately believe that every child and young person has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances – and, as a result, we work with over 6000 children, young people and families in the North West of England every year.  We work in the heart of communities – often in partnership with other organisations – to end family cycles of deprivation, drug and alcohol abuse, lack of self-esteem, youth crime, teenage pregnancies and broken families.

As a result, we help to strengthen individuals, families and communities so that children and young people can lead healthy and meaningful lives, with the opportunity to succeed in school, to grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities and to be successful in the world of work.

Child Action Northwest won our Social Enterprise of the Year Award in 2019 AND 2021, and Environmental Champion of the Year in 2022 – plus Rachael Gallagher of Child Action North West won our Employee of the Year Award in 2019, Natalie Hall of CANWe Solutions won our Social Enterprise Employee of the Year in 2021, and Dominic Hawke won Social Enterprise Employee of the Year Award in 2022!
