Argonaut Community Enterprises is based in the West Midlands and was founded by two deaf people who both worked in employment services to ensure access for deaf jobseekers.They noticed that despite having relevant qualifications and excellent skills deaf candidates were, for various reasons, still having problems securing work. Further research found similar issues with candidates with other disabilities.
During a working visit to Australia they discovered a company who were securing mainstream contracts and appointing disabled people to deliver. The model for Argonaut Community Enterprises was developed and established in September 2010 as a not-for-profit Social Enterprise, enabling investment and support for the local community.
Trading started mostly in domestic cleaning with some commercial but soon they added other services, such as gardening, painting, office cleaning and general maintenance. They are proud to deliver a high-quality service, tailoring each contract to meet the specific needs of each customer.
Their vision is to see deaf or disabled people in work which fulfils their aspirations and potential, delivering cleaning, office cleaning, gardening and grounds maintenance, painting, and other maintenance services to commercial, domestic and third sector customers.
