The aim of the project is to provide work experience in the Readifood warehouse in a supported environment to help build confidence as part of a person’s journey to get back into work. We are keen to be flexible and adapt sessions to meet individual’s needs.
Participants will be offered:

  • Work experience sessions for 2-3 hours a week initially for 4 weeks with opportunity to extend up to 12 weeks
  • One to one support from a volunteer companion
  • Opportunities to gain experience working in a team and working independently
  • Tasks including sorting food donations and packing parcels with the option to extend to other duties.
  • Employer reference at the end of the work experience
  • Transport assistance to and from sessions if required
  • Support applying for returning to work training courses
