The government has a clear objective for more people with a learning disability to participate in employment and wherever possible take up paid work. Since the late 1980’s the Brothers of Charity Services in Lancashire have made a commitment to support people in both voluntary work and wherever possible, paid employment.

Across the Lancashire services we are able to offer a range of social enterprise options for adults and young people with additional needs; these services are designed to support people to develop skills with confidence in a supportive working environment whilst offering a valued service in the heart of the local community.

The learning and development of each person supported is at the forefront of our enterprises’ ethos – whether it be developing soft skills such as time-management and flexibility, technical skills in relation to a particular work environment/industry or simply growing in confidence and making new friends.
