Northamptonshire charity and social enterprise –Teamwork Trust – has centres in Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough where autistic adults and adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs are given chances, choices and opportunities to develop themselves and move on.
Among the many self-sustainable projects and micro enterprises on offer, service-users feel empowered to support local businesses with their manufacturing tasks on the factory floor, make badges, personalised products and wooden gifts to sell, and even manage their very own gardening service. They come up with their own ideas and are supported to succeed – encouraging progression, independence and a sense of purpose every step of the way.
Through the things they create, transform, assemble and build, service-users grow in confidence and make a real difference in the local community. Any profits are always ploughed back into Teamwork Trust.
