Social Enterprise 17/05/19

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 enterprises have been up to.

We have kindly received lots of donations lately of school uniform items, but unfortunately we have been struggling to find space for them all in our shop. We have had a big spring clean and found some lovely new homes for some of our items. Our team have started to take donations again and we are so thankful for every single one of them! We do apologise to anyone who we have had to disappoint by turning away their donations.

Thank you to everyone who had made a kind donation recently, please keep them coming! 👗👔
