Who are Timesavers?

Timesavers was originally set up as a Social Enterprise to provide an Office Administration Service for voluntary sector organisations in West Lancs serving Burscough, Ormskirk, Skelmersdale, Tarleton, Parbold in order to give work experience opportunities for people with learning disabilities who have found it difficult to find paid jobs or work placements in office administration.

The people involved with Timesavers have wanted to find a work placement or paid work in an office for a long time, but have not been successful. So they have now decided to provide their own work experience in an enterprising way for themselves and others in similar circumstances. We feel that working in this way will not only enable them to keep busy and build up their skills but also they will be able to give something back to society and show what people with learning disabilities can achieve. We have found that the organisation will need to apply for charity status in order to be able to achieve our objectives of providing work experience and skills training in office work for people with learning disabilities in West Lancs. We became a registered charity at the end of August 2012.
