Work Ltd

Providing life skills and occupational training for people with learning disabilities

At WORK Ltd, we believe a caring and supportive environment encourages our students to reach their full potential. We aim to provide opportunities for people with learning disabilities to develop life skills, build confidence and cultivate self-esteem.

Our hands-on work projects are available to adults aged sixteen years and over. Students can participate in a variety of activities including woodwork, gardening, textiles, arts & crafts, nature walks, sports, dance, music and drama. Our experienced team of staff and tutors deliver a varied and engaging programme of activities, with the end goal of creating a product that will go on sale in our cafe or online shop.

“WORK Ltd has provided the best of services for my adult daughter. She has done things I wouldn’t have thought possible. She loves going there. She is well cared for and her opinions are respected. She feels she belongs. In her own words ‘brilliant!’

Such peace of mind that you have what you need and from such caring, happy and dedicated people. Thank you WORK Ltd.

WORK Ltd began with just twelve students in 1995. From these humble beginnings it has now grown dramatically and serves over 78 students each week, with a dedicated team of staff tailoring support for each individual to meet their specific needs.

We operate as a small charitable organisation based in Sheffield. Our premises and services are sustained by public donations and the proceeds from our award winning cafe and unique gift shop along with our newly launched online shop.
