Service description:

Workbridge is a vocational pathway for people with mental health needs, learning disabilities or brain injuries, providing people with opportunities to gain skills and build confidence.

Service users are mentored by our skilled staff across a variety of work activities to encourage independence, respect, teamwork and trust; building skills, knowledge and self-esteem in a supportive environment.

As they progress, the team supports them when they are looking for jobs, completing applications and preparing for and attending interviews.

All of the activities carried out by service users at Workbridge are meaningful, essential to the running of a fully functional work environment. The funds raised through the retail enterprises assist Workbridge and St Andrew's, the charity it is part of, to develop and enrich the services offered to service users and customers.

The bakery workshop offers new vocational opportunities to the people in their care, giving them the chance to make their own bread in a supported environment.

The bakery workshop is available (as an extra or alternative session) to anyone who currently attends Workbridge. Anyone not currently attending Workbridge can be referred to the bakery (specifically) at a cost of £25 per session.

This provider has been awarded a local authority contract to provide services for adults with learning disabilities.
