  1. We are a not for profit organisation in Kirklees specifically set up to support people who have not had the chance to gain any type of employment or training.

    We are aiming to help people gain the skills they need to go into employment. We support people to develop their skills, gain confidence and enhance the opportunities available to them. It is important that people develop their skills in a real setting at their own pace, with the support that they need. That's exactly what we give to people.

    Please see our facebook page for latest details and contact.

Normally we add categories for you when the entry is set up, but you have the option to edit them. Very occasionally some categories have restricted usage and we’ll let you know if we feel there’s a problem.

The categories are tiered with the broadest first. Click on the plus sign till you find the specific categories that best suit your group.


  1. Stanley's training project was set up in 2012 to work with people who have a learning disability. We work with anyone who finds it hard to access education, training or employment.

    The aim was to set up a catering and retail workshop that does a number of things:

    -Supports people to gain skills in their chosen area. This will help them develop the skills needed to gain employment.
    -As we will trade with the public and within the community, we aim to break down barriers that may exist and promote inclusion.
    -We aim to support people into employment.
    -We aim to support other organisations, creating links and establishing a firm basis to build upon.

    As time progressed we decided to work with a range of people with disabilities, but with a focus on people with learning disabilities. We support people into paid or voluntary employment by giving them the skills and confidence to work independently through running activity cafes called Daisy's Chain.
