We are a living wage employer, helping to train and create jobs for people who need a fresh start in life.

Employment and Training

Our two-year programme starts with jobs in one of our businesses. We offer every member of our team practical training and recognised qualifications.


We place each Team Member in a safe home and community. In 2016 we opened the doors to The Oaks – a 12-bedroom residential training centre in Sharston.

Christian Support

What makes the MEC distinctive is that our Christian faith underpins everything we do. All of our Team Members have have demonstrated a desire to live a Christian lifestyle. Each Team Member undertakes our Roots discipleship programme which is a resource designed to help them stand firm in the Christian faith.
