Jesters Kids Club is a Community Interest Company. This CIC format comes under the umbrella of a Social Enterprise, which is 'a business that is engaged in some form of trading, but it trades primarily to support a social purpose'.
Like any enterprise, Jesters aims to generate a small surplus, but our intention is to reinvest any surplus principally into the business or the community to enable us to deliver our social objectives and values. Any profits generated are devoted to sustaining and enhancing our club in particular by investment in play equipment, activities, garden and building upkeep.
This statement outlines the services that children, parents/carers and the community can expect from Jesters, and the values that inform our work:

"I wish you picked up from my school so I could come all the time and not just in the holidays. I always have so much fun and never want to go home."
