Supporting People of

As part of their academy training, Associates put their training and skills into practice by supporting our social enterprise projects, which seeks to create opportunities for People of Determination. A chance to gain industry experience whilst influencing positive social impact.

People of Determination?
A relatively new strengths-based term that focuses on the tenacity and skills of individuals with disabilities. Yes, another label, but it sends out a positive message to the people we work with.
