Working Towards a Brighter Future
GO is a social enterprise, that focuses on primarily providing training and
support to disadvantaged people in Guernsey but aims to do this in a financially self-sustaining way by providing recycling and retail services.
Who We Help
“We help anyone who will benefit in finding employment through our training and support packages by giving them the skills, confidence and experience to be able to manage their lives and to enter the mainstream employment markets”
Individuals who benefit from this can be from a wide range of backgrounds, including those with learning disabilities, mental health issues and conditions such as Autism. Our services have been extended to include those with short-term mental health issues, ex-offenders and those who are educationally disadvantaged.
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”
The most rewarding aspect of being a volunteer at Go is seeing the development of the trainees. Most of them join Go straight from school and many have been bullied because of their learning difficulties have very low self esteem and have poor communication skills. Over a very short time working in a friendly structured work place their confidence and communication skills improve and they are much more able to deal with the day to day problems of the outside world. This in my view is what Go is all about.
