GO CREATE! (or Five GO Trading)

We have launched a project called GO CREATE to develop employability skills with young people who have additional needs. We are supporting them to help us develop new products and services which reflect our passion for their skills, leadership, determination and independence.

This has been made possible through an enterprise development grant through Social Investment Business and has culminated in a feasibility report to identify the best business opportunities to pursue, in order to bring maximum benefit to our clients and make GO less reliant on grant funding.

We developed Five GO Trading as a working title for the project, because we enlisted the support of five very creative young people to help us breathe life into our plans! These Famous Five have helped us to open up new futures, so keep checking us out here, to keep up to date with progress - James, Daniel and Steph are pictured right.

We have developed a small range of craft goods which we plan to sell online (see our Gallery pages), but we are going to focus our future efforts on video and film work to tell people's stories, capture personal goals and dreams and make their collective voices heard. This can be in the form of video CVs and personal support plans, but we will also be creating individual Life Stories on film and maybe in print too. We also plan to enlist support from our amazing clients, to help individuals review their services, such as annual reviews of supported living provision, or grant-funded projects which require peer evaluation.
