Andrew Scott Ltd continue to support Croeserw Community Education Centre
After completing the construction of the Croeserw Community Enterprise Centre, Andrew Scott Ltd is still happy to support the working groups that use the centre on a daily basis.
The Afan Valley Adult Learning Disabilities Group are now based at the centre and are led by development worker Christine Ham. They have made the most of the space and facilities by developing their sewing skills, starting a craft enterprise and changing their name to UAV Fresh Start. Making a variety of fantastic items including jewellery, cushions, roman blinds, embroidered blankets the group have been so successful they are now not only selling their products at the centre but also in local shops including Afan Forest Park and Margam Park gift shops.
To break down barriers and to try and change perceptions of people with learning disabilities the group have decided to pass their skills on to others that use the centre by running additional courses.
The group were nominated for an Adult Learner of the Year Award 2014 and not only won the Most Enterprising Learner award but also the Active Learning for Health and Wellbeing award.
To reward the UAV Fresh Start members on their success, Alison Rees, Business Development Manager at Andrew Scott Ltd, presented Christine Ham with a cheque, which will allow the group to purchase additional equipment.
