In reply to Rockers Rule, I set up a charity shop, but before you say Oh no not another one, we provide training and retail work experience for young adults with learning difficulties since they find it very difficult to find meaningful employment once they leave full time education. Our students are trained then supported to carry out a range of tasks necessary to run an effective retail outlet. They learn to liaise with customers and suppliers, sort, steam and price up garments for resale, serve customers, use tills, give correct change, stock rotation and window display. The skills resulting from work experience placements will put the young adults in a much stronger position to seek formal employment.
We're inbetween the Golden Scissors barbers and the cake shop, pop in and have a browse next time you're down that way.
