We have been learning about the Rossendale Trust’s Work Taste programme.
Many of the tenants at the trust, near Sutton, expressed an interest in spending some time in a real working environment, so the Work Taste initiative was set up to make it happen.
People who join the programme have one-to-one support from one of the trust’s coaches, who work alongside them. This encourages them to become more independent in the workplace by improving and teaching new skills.
The trust is now starting to open the programme to non-residents from the local community.
