Outside the Box Works


'Outside the Box Works' is a new project available to our members who are ready to use their skills, training and experience gained from working in our busy café to progress into paid employment.

Some of our members have already completed an 8 week Work Club, which was delivered in partnership with North Yorkshire Adult Learning and Skills Service, to help members prepare for work. It covered sessions on the world of work, CV development, meeting employers and learning disabled employees and interview preparation.

We are currently looking for all types local organisations, employers and businesses who can help our members to achieve their goal.

We would love to hear from you if you can offer fact-finding visits, work taster sessions, work placements, relevant volunteering and paid employment, including short-term positions and one-off events.

Full support, advice and training will be given as well as accreditation on the Outside the Box Charter and free local publicity.
