AGNI is a social enterprise founded by Jessica and Matt Cronshaw in 2017 and brings together their mindful practices of candle making and ceramics, passions that they find transformative and supportive to their mental wellbeing. Profits from AGNI fund candle making workshops and traineeships for people experiencing mental health problems.
AGNI have recently been accepted onto The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Start Up Programme, in partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs, and jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
