All members attending Assist Trust are given the chance to try out different work skills.

For those just starting out, this is often in the form of an internal job – such as sorting out the bins, sorting out the dishwasher or cleaning the tables before lunch – so that people have a chance at trying things out in a manageable way.

For those who are able to travel train and cope with the responsibilities of an external placement, the employment team provide support in a very gradual and consistent way, helping to find suitable work experience and paid opportunities in the local community working with local and national employers such as:

  • Opening Doors
  • St Francis Church
  • Doherty’s
  • Oxfam
  • Sense
  • Revelation Café
  • Café Tots – NCBC
  • Age UK
  • The Phoenix Centre
  • The Belvedere Centre
  • The Feed
  • The Forum
  • Salvation Army
  • Enrich Learning Trust- Long Stratton High School

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the employers we work with for their fantastic and continued support.
