We are Claire and Rhian and we run LoveWell

LoveWell is a social enterprise supporting and training women who have experienced significant trauma through trafficking and exploitation to grow in strength and confidence, so they can move into alternative employment.

It was set up to offer women the opportunity to build new skills through the manufacture of luxury natural skincare products. 

Follow up support after the programme

Following the training programme, each trainee is supported by a Lovewell mentor for at least 6 months, usually up to a year. This offers an extra safety net of support and adds longevity to their experience with LoveWell. 

Poverty and a lack of economic independence are the two causes that make women and children vulnerable to exploitation. We believe that by creating a place where women feel safe to recover and move forward that we can be part of ensuring these cycles of exploitation do not continue to occur. 

LoveWell’s mission is to break these cycles.

Work Well Training Programme

We run a 6-month Work Well training programme and these placements are the tool by which we support women to re-enter employment after their time training with us.

Our training programme makes a huge difference

Sales of our products help to fund our 6-month Work Well training programme, which encompasses skills development and work readiness training. Our programme is central to LoveWell’s purpose – to support women to grow in strength and confidence and take control of their lives.

Every product sold is made by our women

We create products to uplift your senses and nourish your skin. Most of all however, we want the story behind our company to capture your imagination.
