A PATS New Product Award winner is offering a new work experience programme.
Norfolk Industries for Disabled People will be offering the EVOLVE programme from July. A spokeswoman said: “Having gained European Funding, EVOLVE will bring people in from rural areas to provide work experience, training and development over a period of up to 12 weeks, including a travel subsidy if required.”
Norfolk Industries for Disabled People is a not-for-profit organisation that employs people with disabilities. It makes small animal bedding products using recycled waste materials, reducing the amount of waste to landfill by about 140 tonnes per year. It won Small Animal category in the New Product Awards for its medium animal house at PATS Sandown.
