Enabling people with disabilities to reach their full potential in enterprise and the community.
Through our carefully considered programmes individuals are enabled to fulfil their potential and add value to their community, including our own social enterprises. There are many variations on the work that our members can take part in and their achievements are remarkable.
Our businesses range from plants to Furniture Restoration and even helping to run our fantastic visitor attraction The Aldingbourne Country Centre! From cafés to car washing, our enterprises create opportunities for learning new skills and gaining experience, as well as increasing the Trust’s sustainability by providing top quality products and services for you to buy.
