Social enterprise

Our Social Enterprise department helps prepare young people for life after WESC Foundation, instilling in them the self-confidence, belief and skills necessary to aid transition into adulthood.

We believe that every young student, regardless of disability can function and contribute to society and have a positive impact upon the world around them.

We create and offer new opportunities and experiences for our young people, with emphasis placed on their abilities, by structuring a working and learning programme specifically tailored to meet the personal development needs of each individual.

Training is provided in real working environments, supported by qualified Manager/Trainers, who encourage each learner to progress to meet their full potential.

About our work

The WESC Social Enterprise retail portfolio currently consists of five fully functioning charity shops, and a registered online eBay shop, which is managed and supported by WESC students and adults with sight loss.

Social Enterprise also supports the campus Discovery Garden and WESC Country Works (West Hill) horticulture projects.
