A Beautiful Mess is a social enterprise, and we comply with the Code of Social Enterprises. We were initiated by Refugee Company, a foundation supported through subsidies and sponsorships. Refugee Company organizes highly popular charity dinner events twice a year.

OUR PEOPLE 

The diversity of our people, their backgrounds and their unique talents lie at the heart of A Beautiful Mess. At our place, people with a refugee background work together with locals. Acknowledging what our participants have been through, is combined with a straight up can-do mentality. Clichés are often true, so here it comes: the future starts today.

RESULTS

Over the past four years, 150 participants at A Beautiful Mess found a paid job. A good start, but that’s no reason to slow down. We’re moving forward and we are growing: in 2020, we’re opening new locations in the cities of Arnhem and Utrecht. Our aim, as ever, is to create more safe spaces where people with a refugee background can feel supported and begin building a new life.
