What is Wellies2Work?
Wellies2Work is a work preparation programme for people aged 16-25 with learning disabilities. We support people who would like to develop skills that could lead to employment and increase their independence. We believe that everyone has something to offer and should be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
We support the young people through the process of gaining employment until they are confident and settled in their placement.
We supports businesses to understand the potential benefits of employing someone with a learning disability and more.
At Wellies2Work we look to share best practice, contacts and knowledge to promote positive outcomes for this group of young people.
How can we help you?
We believe in a holistic approach that supports people to improve their emotional, physical and mental wellbeing through the therapeutic nature of working outdoors, and with the support from our diverse professional team.
From this secure platform of confidence and self-esteem, we will support people to discover where their interests lie, develop their independence and work skills and help bridge the gap into employment wherever possible.
