This week has seen the launch of a new website for Re-Employ
as well as their traditional range of branded goods they can now also supply work and leisure wear.
At the start of November the whole team completed their St Andrew’s First Aid course.
All the staff and volunteers at Re-Employ really enjoyed taking part in the course and were proud of themselves in successfully completing it and becoming qualified first aiders.
Irene Donaldson, the founder of Re-Employ said: “I’m so proud of the team, they have all done so well and in doing so, making our site a safer place.
“A huge thank you must go to the St Andrew’s First Aid trainers”.
The last few weeks have also been busy as they get lots of Christmas orders out.
Re-Employ, at the Crosshill Centre, work with those furthest away from the labour market, individuals that face multiple challenges. The social enterprise offers employment, training and volunteering opportunities in real and meaningful work.
The Yard offer dynamic and interactive training for anyone interested in learning more about play or disability. All of the courses are open to everyone, including parents and professionals.
All training is held at The Yard Edinburgh on Thursdays from 9.30am to 12.15pm.
Courses are led by experts from Tailor Ed and The Yard. Each session has a maximum of 25 participants, ensuring a high quality, personalised and great value training experience.
Each course costs £35 per person payable in advance, except Signalong, which costs
£45 per person. Members receive a 20% discount on all courses.
