Our mission

A social enterprise is a business that has a social mission. Social, environmental and economic issues are fundamental and drive the business’s core philosophy. Here at Renew, we undertake to provide saleable products, with the purpose of benefiting the local community at large, and creating employment. We believe people have the right to participate fully in life from an economic, social and cultural perspective. We also support creating a sustainable future for every member of society and for societies as a whole. We are committed to social inclusion and social justice.

Renew is a non for profit Social Enterprise operated by Treo Port Lairge CLG, set up to create full-time employment for people that have been distant from the labour market, to learn, train and practice new skills and to experience working in a real time working environment. Renew social enterprise is funded by Pobal.

Renew social enterprise consists of a range of products and services available to the Waterford community. We remain mindful of the need to price our products and services in a manner that makes them affordable. Our Workshop operates five a days a week (9am-6pm) where the repair and service of bicycles, tools and small engines takes place. A range of quality pallet furniture and custom made furniture is also produced. Items include; picnic tables and benches, bird boxes, window boxes and outdoor bars. Our ethos is to use as much recycled timber and materials wherever possible. However some of our projects may require the use of prepared timber. We also produce and sell kindling.
