Improving life skills
Boosting employment, social and life skills
We do all that we can to increase the independence of service users and break down any barriers between them and their communities.
That is why we wholeheartedly support service users to participate in community activities and projects to build confidence, life skills, and opportunities for employment.
How do we do it?
Service users have the chance to learn and improve skills through two social enterprise projects, the JT Project and Occasions Catering.
The JT Project
Based at Hill House in Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, the Project gives adult service users training and experience in a range of activities including:
- pack ordered goods, plan delivery routes, load vehicles, and make deliveries for our cleaning materials depot
- make fence panels, planters and bird boxes in the fully-equipped workshop
- work alongside trained gardeners and help maintain equipment
- do general maintenance jobs on our buildings
- crafts and IT skills
Our in-house catering service prepares and delivers buffet meals to local organisations. Service users help with buying food for the buffets, making sandwiches and drinks, and delivering orders to customers.
