The Enterprise Project takes place every Thursday during term time between 10.00am and 1.00pm. The group takes part in activities such as design, product assembly and selling to customers which give the experience of being part of a business. The group are supported by trained staff who work with the group at each stage of the process.
The group are currently running a handmade beeswax candle making business. A range of different styles of candles are created by the attendees who package them and sell them at a local market, other events in the local community and LinkAble events.
We are working with 'Inspiring Enterprise' to help the group develop vocational skills and develop effective systems and marketing strategies.
There is a cost to service users for this activity.
LinkAble receives no statutory funding for its Adult Services and aims to keep costs to service users as low as possible through its fundraising activities.
