Employment and Training

Our two-year programme starts with a job in one of our 12 social enterprises. We offer every member of our team practical training and recognised qualifications in partnership with local colleges.


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.
