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 paying the Living Wage 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.
