Disabled people in our community do not have the same access to services as others. This includes access to health and wellbeing services. Not many local activity groups are able to adapt sessions to suit those with less mobility or wheelchair users. This project is specifically designed and delivered with disabled people in mind where they are able to take part in activities alongside able bodies people including their parents and carers.
For people who find it difficult to take the traditional employment route, setting up their own business is a good option for them. More and more people when making those first decisions in setting up their own business are choosing to set up as a social enterprise, ensuring that their business has environmental and social benefits as well as financial. This one day training course helps people with the decision making for those very first steps.
