Our 'for&from' stores are run by people with physical or mental disabilities.
Inditex’s 'for&from' programme is aimed at the social integration of people with disabilities, by providing employment opportunities in our stores.
The stores are operated by non-profit partner organisations with the relevant disability expertise. These include Fundación Molí d'en Puigvert, Confederación Galega de Persoas con Discapacidade, Asociación Pro-Discapacitados Psíquicos de Alicante, Moltacte and Fundación Prodis. In all other respects, these branches are just the same as ordinary stores within our franchises.
After an initial donation from us to build the store, the programme funds itself. We supply past-season items which the stores sell at a discount and all profits are then invested back into projects for disabled people.
This initiative began in 2002 and we have since opened 13 for&from stores, with combined sales totalling €7.1 million in 2016 alone and profits of €732,000 to reinvest in disability projects run by our partners.
The programme currently provides stable employment for over 150 people with disabilities. We were proud to open two new stores (a Pull&Bear and Massimo Dutti) in 2016 and two new ones in 2017 (Tempe and Oysho) – and more stores are on the way.
