About the Company

Wild & Kind is a female-focused Community Interest Company (CIC) that also looks to help those from all marginalised gender groups. Wild & Kind’s aim is to help start-up businesses and artists become self-sufficient, while collaborating with others to create ethical and empowering products.

Wild & Kind are also aware of how different privileges and disadvantages in life can affect an individual’s journey in becoming a self-sufficient artist. These observations were the building blocks for the ethos behind ‘Wild & Kind’, and they hope to create something that helps those who really need it.

At present, Wild & Kind have decided on a few projects to kick-start their start up, one being an online, collaborative brand, discounted printing for those in marginalised groups and undertaking supportive projects such as a “Kind Cuppa” where they provide a safe environment for anyone to receive advice and support on new business ideas.
