Mapis CIC

The specialist provider of fashion, beauty and retail education determined to Make A Positive Impact Socially.

As a Social Enterprise, we aim to unleash the creativity of each individual we interact with, inspiring them to succeed in all aspects of their lives. We create an environment which supports our core belief that social diversity, social mobility, social change and cohesion are the ingredients to successful growth and compassion within our community.

Mapis was created based on our experience of working with vulnerable adults and young people from disadvantaged areas facing transition points in their lives (unemployed, underachievers in education, in and out of care, disabled, ex-offenders, people from ethnic minorities, domestic violence victims or any people with low self-esteem).

Our goal is to help as many of these people, who otherwise would not have that chance. Through fashion, beauty, design, fitness, dance and arts Mapis is helping them to raise confidence, gain communication skills and to believe in their abilities. For further information on courses and the service please visit our website.

Courses run throughout Berkshire including Reading.
