Edinburgh Candle Company
A platform for long-term unemployed women to gain an income by making sustainable candles from their own home.
The Edinburgh Candle Company trains unemployed women around the city of Edinburgh to make environmentally friendly soy-wax candles. In addition to selling candles, we run a one-on-one mentorship scheme, providing a platform for the women to gain confidence, transferable skills, and a sense of community. We also fund any extra educational or English language courses our beneficiaries need to get back into long-term employment.
