We are a social enterprise and support several causes through our activities:
Undershaw is a school for children with learning disabilities based in the former home of the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The building has been restored back to its former glory and now houses one of Europe’s leading facilities for learning disabilities. Steve Emecz is a patron of the school.
Twinned with Undershaw, Happy Life has saved the lives of over 800 abandoned babies in the last two decades. The project has expanded to include a school and paediatric hospital. Steve and his wife Sharon spend every Christmas out at Happy Life with the kids.

There are 821 million undernourished people in the world today. That means one in nine people do not get enough food to lead an active and healthy life. In fact, hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. The good news is that hunger is entirely solvable. And it costs just US$0.50 to feed one child for a day. Steve Emecz is a World Food Programme mentor and participates in the Innovation Accelerators in Munich, Germany. The team won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020.
This is the leading venue for cancer research in the U.S. and will receive its proceeds from all USA and GLOBAL editions of The Art of Sherlock Holmes.
We have a solution that is working. A new approach to resilience and mental health. For youth, schools and universities, we share a revolutionary preventative educational curriculum that is transforming entire educational environments.
