Work Skills

The Glebe House Work Skills service is for adults with learning disabilities who want to learn new practical skills in a workshop environment or want to get out and about in the local area, supporting a variety of environmental projects.

The Work Skills Services is based at the specially adapted Glebe Workshop in Loughborough, and we also get out and about helping people in the local community and look after our allotments. We are very involved in Britain in Bloom and helping to keep all the Glebe House buildings and vehicles in good condition.

Our activities include maintenance work, carpentry, gardening and general repair and DIY. This is a very “hands on” practical service, which teaches clients how to create, build and grow things and see projects through from beginning to end. We aim to make people become more confident, make new friends, and even get a qualification where possible. We have established great links within the community, and we aim to provide whatever support is needed.

There is a choice of how many hours each day someone can access Work Skills. Services generally run between 9am – 4:30pm each weekday.

Each person joining the Work Skills team can choose where and when they work and will be supported by qualified staff who have all the skills needed to make sure each session is enjoyable.
