Paperworks is a Social Enterprise, this just means we are a business but primarily aimed at delivering a social benefit, whilst relying on trading income for financial support.
Our main aim is to provide work preparation training and support to adults with learning, physical and mental health related disabilities. This includes basic work skills, as well as other more specific skills vital in the workplace.
We also support trainees (and their employer) in work placements within other organisations. To find out more about our training services click here.
Our method of providing this training is based around the whole organisation very much functioning as a business and treating trainees in a similar way to employees.
The basis for our business is based around print and print finishing. We have also developed services such as mailing services, stock holding, pick pack and despatch, and assembly of items such as information packs and customer product ready for despatch.
Through all of the things we do we try to balance the social and enterprise aspects of what we do, ensuring we create a supportive working environment with plenty of variety and challenges. This builds the experience and confidence our trainees need to help them towards work and contributes to the enjoyable experience of work that motivates them. It also makes Paperworks a great place to work
