Over recent years our Volunteer/Placement programme has provided opportunities for more than 60 people from varying backgrounds, helping them prepare for the world of work. Many of them have received certificated training in Health & Safety, Manual Handling, First Aid Awareness and Customer Care.
We changed our focus in 2008 and established a programme for disadvantaged adults. They may have learning difficulties or have been out of work for a time and be finding it difficult to get back into employment. Our aim is to provide a secure and enjoyable environment in which they can develop their skills and build up their self-confidence in order to enhance their chances of finding a job which they enjoy.
None of this is possible, however, without funding and we are currently looking for potential donors to assist us with this worthwhile venture.
