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
- 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.
