As part of my time on the inc. programme, I’ve partnered with the Enham Trust, creating the 20/21 inc. graduation T-Shirt with £4 per t-shirt being split between Aster’s Housing First Programme (enabling people without homes to have a home with support and the Enham Trust (charity No. 211235) to help raise much-needed funds for two fabulous causes.
The fantastic artwork on the front of the t-shirt has been designed by a service user at Enham Trust, through a collaborative art project created through the inc. programme.
Enham Trust Supporting disabled people to live, work & enjoy life for 100 years.
This is a pre-order, if you would like a t-shirt for graduation day please place your order by 14th June 2021. Similarly, if you just want a T-Shirt to commemorate the 20/21 programme and have made it here after the 14th no worries as we will add your pre-order to the second run to be delivered at a later date.
inc. is part of The Aster Foundations drive to develop innovative and sustainable ways to drive change across our communities, to invest in their future through a range of initiatives that improve life chances and remove barriers. The Aster Foundation mission “everyone should have a home” fits well with CDUK, hence why I joined the 2020/21 inc. programme, as Aster’s vision, aligned with my business vision, mission and values.

It’s printed on a t-shirts from our Living Wage range which as the name suggests pays a living wage to the co-op of ex sweatshop workers, who also happen to be survivors of the Rana Plaza disaster, while also providing extra benefits such as funding health care and education for the families of the workers.
The products are purchased via No Sweat; “a grassroots campaign that builds solidarity among workers’ worldwide. We look to global social justice movements and to the international workers’ movement to build common, united, campaigning action against workplace exploitation and the sweatshop bosses.”
So not only does the cost of this t-shirt provide a decent living to those who produce it but it helps fund No Sweat’s vital work standing up for oppressed workers around the world.
