Please jump for able2achieve Trust so we can fund work placement learning for adults with learning disabilities and other associated Illnesses.
able2achieve Trust aim to support adults with learning disabilities and other associated illnesses in being a part of a work place environment learning real working skills in a practical environment.
We currently have projects within the trust, a coffee shop called The Winking Frog and an antiques & collectables shop called able2antiquities.
The Winking Frog works as a fully functional Coffee Shop, with able2achieve Trust employed staff supporting our learners to serve customers, take orders, prepare food, make a variety of different hot drinks along with many other tasks that are involved in the industry.
able2antiquities works very much like a charity shop with a slight difference to being antiquities & collectables specific, with able2achieve Trust employed staff supporting or learners to purchase stock, maintain the stock within the shop, ensure that everything is displayed correctly along with serving customers.
Our new project in Ottery ST Mary will have a combination of this, with having both a coffee shop and antiques shop in to one. We are looking at calling this project "The Whistling Duck".
All monies raised for able2achieve Trust will go towards one of these projects and in doing to support our learners learn independent working skills to eventually support them into paid employment.
