To provide socialisation, increase self esteem, ensuring all our clients maximise their own abilities in a friendly, safe and structured environment. We initially worked only with people with learning difficulties but we have expanded to now take in all who feel they would benefit from working with us. Consequently we now offer work experience to students from the Borders College, offenders from the Richmond Fellowship in addition to our learning difficulties remit.
