Watford Workshop is a registered charity seeking to provide employment, work experience, skills development and training for people with disabilities/learning difficulties who are of working age. They train people in both independent living skills and employment related skills in areas such as assembly and packaging work, fork lift truck driving, first aid and office administration with the aim that their more able users will move on to unsupported mainstream employment. Having recently been donated a large portacabin, they approached us for funding to help them to be able to employ the necessary 4 professional trainers they needed to be able to offer additional personal development and independent living skills training (18 hours per week for up to 60 service users for 12 months). They also required materials and teaching aids. ACT were pleased to offer a pledge of £10K towards their new project.
