Skills development

Members of the community volunteer their time at the workshop for a variety of reasons. It may be that time spent learning workshop and customer skills looks good on a C.V.  or working alongside others, sharing in workshop banter and helping people resolve problems, is very good for one’s self-esteem, identity and wellbeing. Certainly, many previous participants go on to find conventional paid work, and we like to think that our structured yet supportive work environment helps with this.
