We are delighted to have been recognised as one of the Top 100 social enterprises in the NatWest SE100 Index 2023 – now for the third year in a row!!
The NatWest SE100 Index was devised in 2010 by Pioneers Post and NatWest to recognise and reward the leading 100 social enterprises across the UK each year.
The Top 100 are judged on a wide range of criteria – from the growth and sustainability of their businesses to the innovation and resilience they have demonstrated and the social impact they have delivered.
Micro Rainbow supports over 1,200 LGBTQI people fleeing persecution every year. We do so by implementing a holistic approach to integration that has three main pillars: the provision of safe housing, social inclusion activities and employability support.
Sebastian Rocca, Founder and CEO of Micro Rainbow said:
“We are thrilled to be named one of the top 100 social enterprises for the third year running. In 2022 we supported over 1,200 LGBTQI fleeing persecution. It’s fantastic to see Micro Rainbow being recognised for its hard work and innovative vision. It’s a crucial reminder that despite the current rhetoric around refugees and LGBTQI people, the vast majority of people are welcoming to refugees and support LGBTQI people. We are proud to be a social enterprise that changes LGBTQI lives.”
