The Animari Partnership Ltd brings together the unique blend of knowledge, skills and experience of one family, their friends and associates with a shared vision, shared values and a common purpose.
Using a needs/market led and beneficiary/customer focused approach to our business, Animari Partnership Ltd has developed ethical, socially responsible, holistic enterprises, in which well-being and happiness, learning, empowerment, mutual support and positive life experiences really matter.
We ensure that at all times everything we do is led by the principles of empathy, compassion, kindness, charity, care, respect and equality; where collaboration, partnership, trust and honesty underpin our business strategy.
As a family run social enterprise, we specialise in developing productive, sustainable and diverse enterprises where the synergy of values and actions is paramount, creating products and services which exceed expectations.
Our holistic approach has a sound ethical bias: from encouraging sustainable growth of rural businesses to encouraging estates to manage resources environmentally and productively; from product sourcing and supply, to using the best local ingredients in our food service; from organic fruit and vegetable growing, to our unique timber products; from our art and craft workshops to our specialist art products and other creative designs; from the value we place on nature connections, to the approach we take in providing learning opportunities available to everyone; from our work in nurturing talent and confidence building, to developing third sector leaders for the future.
We care about what we do and those we meet on our social enterprise journey, we want to be agents for change, to challenge the way things have been done, to enable new thinking and create a healthier life balance. We are proud to be a Real Living Wage employer.
The choice of our business name was no accident or random creation. It includes letters in the names of our founding partners but it represents so much more, which reflects and epitomises our business philosophy. The name ‘Animari’ is a latin derivative meaning: to come alive, to fill with new breath, to refresh and revive, to transform and inspire, to encourage and help, to enliven, to kindle and to light up.
We embody all these definitions in every aspect of our work, ensuring that we have a positive and enriching impact on the lives of others whilst working in harmony with the natural world.
