Work Skills Development Unit


The Work Skills Development Unit is a work group for adults with learning and physical disabilities.

The team will take into account transport needs and can provide bus training for independent travel where appropriate or pick up and drop off support in one of our two minibuses where needed.  We support people in a variety of work opportunities including


  • Grass cutting in various locations and organisations throughout Peterborough

  • Making and selling kindling

  • Can recycling

  • Painting and decorating

  • Envelope filling

  • Bird box making.

Health and safety is a priority and the people we support receive training in manual handling and use appropriate safety wear. The team provides individual training to help build confidence and skills. The opportunity to socialise and feel part of the team is encouraged however staff also recognise the need for space for some individuals. Staff work alongside the job coach scheme to enable people to progress to mainstream work should they wish to do so.
