The project would be geared towards individuals with learning disabilities. Giving the students with learning disabilities specialised skills to make sustainable products. Skills such as Art, Business and Carpentry for example.
We want to be able to use everything around us and turn them into everyday useful modern products. We will be using anything we can get out hands on to upcycle into useful products such as making clothes,household products and other useful items. This in turn will give the students skills of creating and redesigning products into commercial goods.
We want to show and educate all to look at their waste or products in the home that they want to throw out in a different light. the items we will be making will be geared towards the medium and top end of the market. We aim to show our products at events to create more buyers, events such as Top Drawer in London.
we want the students to do outreach and present out work and educate others on upcycling various goods.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
It is a good idea as it gives those with learning disabilities a commercial purpose, It also gives this group who are are marginalised hope, confidence, skills, experience and an opportunity to meet others to socialize. The project will also be a hub where they will be able to have a chance to have an area to socialise with others with entertainment.
All in all they will also gain experience in Business, Art and other craft skills, also awareness of recycling.
Steps to get it done:
The government says,
that people with learningdisabilities should have the chance to
do the samethings as anyone else.It says so in Valuing People Now.
Living life to the full is about doing things that makeyou happy – at home
and away from home.It’s about getting to do what you like to do.It’s about
getting out and about and being with people you like.
Remploy was a devastating hit to many with disabilities, especially in the Borough Of Ealing where a Remploy factory was situated. With this project we aim to build something of substantial quality so those with Learning Disabilities can engage back into work or training.
