Our social enterprises trade as commercial businesses, providing participants with learning disabilities or Autism with relevant, industry-specific skills.
Orchardville operate a number of social enterprises that provide supported training and development, in real working environments, for our participants. These commercial businesses are a key part of preparing our participants for working life, while highlighting the focus we put on buying local and supporting local business.
Based in East, West and North Belfast, Orchard Cafés are busy coffee shops, providing work experience and development opportunities for up to 6 participants daily. Participants are supported onsite by vocational mentors to achieve their agreed goals and ultimately secure paid employment.
Orchardville Works provide a range of print, hand finishing and mailing solutions to customers. Based in East Belfast, Orchardville Works provides up to 12 participants daily with the opportunity to develop their employability and soft skills in a safe and supported environment.
“Our priority is to provide training and employment opportunities to adults with learning disabilities and or Autism. We create real work environments and have supported hundreds of our students into paid employment”
When we profit, society profits.
