As a social enterprise we reinvest a substantial amount of our profits into our Production Trainee scheme which provides paid work and training opportunities for people who might otherwise struggle to find or hold down a job. We have recently formed a partnership with YoungMinds, the UK’s leading mental health charity for children and young people, to open up our training scheme to young people struggling with their mental health. The scheme provides them with an opportunity to learn skills, grown in confidence and fulfil their potential in a supportive but professional environment.
