Hi! I'm Rachel - the creator of Storybox. As a lover of all things local and social, I hope to bring together and showcase some of our amazing social enterprises and local businesses, and the products they have to offer. These are a selection of goods that have been brought together to form a special gift for a loved one whilst at the same time supporting local - a small act that can have big impact!

About the project

Storybox is a community interest initiative started with the objective of trying to support and raise awareness of social enterprises and local businesses within Northern Ireland. 

2020 was a year like no other, bringing so much uncertainty and new challenges for local businesses operating in what were already highly competitive spaces.  However, it has also been a year that has seen the power of collaboration, determination, and innovation within the community in order to adapt and survive the market conditions - despite it being on a virtual or socially distanced level! 

With this in mind, Storybox seeks to showcase some of the local and social goods that we have to offer here in Northern Ireland and bring some of them together in a gift box. These gift boxes can be both a thoughtful present and the opportunity to support local! 

Most importantly though, we hope to share the interesting stories behind these businesses, how they were started, what they do and where to find them. We would like to raise awareness of the vital work being conducted by our social enterprises and how you could support them in their causes.


If you are looking for a special gift for someone, interested in collaborating or would just like to hear more about Storybox, you can contact us by sending an email to info@storyboxni.com.
