TWAM Enterprises Ltd


The Trading Company, TWAM Enterprises Ltd (Company number 10940488) was established on 1 May 2018 following a major review of TWAM’s governance structures.  Its purpose is to undertake commercial and enterprise activity to increase self-generated income.

TWAM Enterprises Ltd will allow TWAM to capitalise on the expertise it has already developed in relation to commercial activity which has resulted in a significant increase in self-generated income and is seeing TWAM recognised nationally for its entrepreneurial work. 

TWAM Enterprises will build on this success and create further growth. From 1 May 2018 it assumed responsibility for activity previously delivered through TWAM’s trading team including the retail operation, venue hire and catering. It will donate/gift aid its profit to TWAM Development Trust to further TWAM’s charitable objectives

The company limited by shares is wholly owned by the five ‘partners’; Gateshead Council, Newcastle City Council, North Tyneside Council, South Tyneside Council and the University of Newcastle.
