Timesavers have been awarded £500 towards running costs from the Eric Wright Charitable Trust.
Edward McCarthy Secretary of Timesavers: “A huge thank-you on behalf of Timesavers. This makes a huge difference.”
Timesavers is a charity set up in 2010 by a group of parents who were concerned by the lack of paid jobs or work experience placements in administration for people with learning disabilities in West Lancashire where they could gain their skills in a supportive environment and on a one to one basis if required.
They provide qualified sessional workers who collect them from where they live, support the people whilst they are at the office, then return them home after their training/ work experience. The learners are encouraged to join a local job club and given help to produce a CV and a speculative letter to go with it working in conjunction with Lancashire County Council Employment Support Service.
Our sessions are at our Skelmersdale office or Bickerstaffe Four Lane Ends Mission.
Support staff for Timesavers are provided by Linkability (West Lancs) , Divine Days Creative Arts CIC and Edward McCarthy Support Services.
