Our approach is to deliver the right support; for an individual to feel empowered, to find their voice, and experience equality, choice, dignity and respect.

Freedom to be heard. Freedom of choice. Freedom to live!

Employability

Hansel 3e operations (employment, education and enterprise)

For most of us work plays an important part in our lives so through our Hansel 3e operations (employment, education and enterprise) we provide a range of opportunities for people with additional support needs to prepare for and be supported in employment, and for anyone to contribute through meaningful and rewarding volunteer activities. Although our Hansel 3e social enterprise focus is on employability outcomes for individuals, support is also provided to Hansel’s wider care services team and customers.
