Social Enterprise Blog 08/03/19

The Brothers of Charity Services have various Social Enterprises for adults with learning disabilities; services are designed to support people to develop skills with confidence in a supportive working environment whilst offering services in the local community.

The social enterprises carryout lots of great, fun, activities for the people we support and the local communities to get involved with. Here you will be able to find out what each of the social enterprises have been up to recently.

Crafty Uniforms

Our team were very busy last week, preparing craft activities for the toddler group at Chorley Methodist Church. The group made sun catchers by using two paper plates, with a circle removed from the middle, and a sheet of plastic glued in between the two plates! The toddlers glued and stuck squares of brightly coloured tissue all over to create a beautiful effect, which looked amazing when held up to the sunshine.

Thank you to all of the team at Crafty Uniforms who helped with preparation and to Lee, Emily and Karen for helping deliver the session.
