What's happening at Oakwood Packaging...

We caught up with a few of our Work Based Training customers at Clacton to find out what they’ve been up to and to talk about their time at Oakwood Packaging.

Humphrey is one of our customers at Oakwood: “I love spending my time here, I get to spend time with people who have now become my friends. I am busy all of the time and love learning new things.”

“I have learned skills that I have used at home and in jobs. I keep learning new things all the time.”

“My favourite job to do at Oakwood is the packing for the NHS. I have learned a lot from it.”

Oakwood Packaging, Clacton, is one of our Work Based Training units that offer a flexible, reliable and efficient packaging service to a wide range of businesses including the NHS.

The service, that has 40 customers attending each week, works on not only developing skills for future employment but it also gives our customers the opportunity to develop and adapt to a routine, build on interpersonal skills as well as becoming accustom to tasks that can help at home and within the community.
