This Season's News
We hope that you and your loved ones are well after these strange few months. Here is an update on how things have been for Grace Enterprises and Radiant Cleaners...
We have been so blessed by our supporters during this time- thank you! Most of our cleaning stopped during lockdown – with only essential work for a couple of customers continuing all the way through. We furloughed most of the team – and thanks to the generous donations of individuals and businesses we have been able to top up the wages of all of our team on furlough to 100%. It has been such an encouragement to see how many people are behind our mission at this time, and through all of the challenges we have seen relationships strengthened.
New business win at this Willmott Dixon site.
Some of our customers are back at work and the new flexible furlough rules from this month mean we are able to bring the team back to work gradually. The major offices have not yet reopened – but we are ready to start cleaning for them (and others) when they do!
If you know anyone who needs cleaning in Nottingham that delivers real social impact please put them in touch!
National Social Value Award
Before Covid-19 struck Radiant Cleaners were winners of another award! The National Social Value conference was held in London and recognised Radiant in the ‘Decent Work’ category alongside UnLtd, who helped to measure the impact of our work.

Grace Enterprises charity
We have restructured Grace Enterprises so that it is now a registered charity. This will help as we develop our support and mentoring for the employees of Radiant - and future businesses. We will be in contact with all of the people who give financially to support the work we do so that we can claim GiftAid on your donations. If you would like to start supporting us in this way, with a monthly donation or a one-off gift, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org We would also love to hear from you if you have experience in writing fund-raising bids and have a few hours you can spare each month to help develop Grace Enterprises.
We received over £2000 from the Coop in April.
Thank you to them – and all of you who shop at Coop – for choosing us! If you are a member and haven’t already done so please nominate Radiant Cleaners
