Hooray!! The All Together Edinburgh Shop/Training Centre has now been refurbished. It now has a new wooden floor and LED lighting, new shop fittings and been freshly painted/decorated..It is much brighter, fresher, modern, spacious and has a splash of colour. The feedback from staff, volunteers, trainees and customers has been fantastic.
We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped to empty the shop before the shopfitters went in, who painted the shop, put the shop fittings in place, who transported stock and stocked/merchandised the shop ready in time for the grand opening. The shop made over £1000 the first day.
Funding was secured through the Leith Chooses event, Baily Thomas Charitable Fund and the Barlerno/Currie Round Table. Our landlord also kindly contributed to the costs. We would like to thank you all so much as the shop has a new lease of life and a joy to work in.
We would also like to give a special thank you to all the people who voted for All Together in the Leith Chooses Event. We could not have made these improvements without you. You have continued to support us since we re-opened and love the new, modern look.
Our mission is to "Create training and employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities". It is committed to helping them to improve their chances of moving into employment.
Our charity shop is vital in that it offers a practical learning environment that facilitates learning, opportunities to improve confidence, work and people skills that are required in the mainstream labour market.
It also offers a way to raise funds for our work and to break down some of the barriers that these individuals encounter. The combination of our accredited training programme, with recognised qualifications will ensure the achievement of our aims.
