What we do
Wheatsheaf Trust is a charity aimed at helping anyone who needs support, but particularly:
- People with disabilities and health conditions
- Young people struggling to enter the labour market
- Mature adults and those returning to the labour market after a period of absence
- Lone parents & families
- Minority ethnic and faith groups
All of our services are tailor-made for the individual. We sit down with them to agree what will work best for them, in a relaxed and friendly environment. As the programmes are designed for the needs of each person, the experience for every client is different. One may involve soft skills development on a 1-1 basis and in small groups to develop skills like teamwork, communication, resilience, confidence and motivation. Another may involve a work experience placement at a small local company, as well as an informal C.V. skills and job search workshop once a week. Both programmes would benefit any jobseeker, but the key is that each is designed to best fulfill the needs of the particular individual. We believe that when you are more satisfied in your work, you feel more fulfilled and happier at home.
