Working Towards a Brighter Future
GO is a social enterprise that focuses primarily on 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.
GO is delighted to announce that we will shortly move to nearby premises. Paul Meader, our Chairman, commented: “Our landlord, JD Norman, has kept us appraised of their negotiations concerning the Quayside site that they have kindly allowed us to use and develop our services free of rent. As a result, we have had time to secure in principle a long-term base of our own, and we will announce our exciting plans very shortly.”

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 volunteering 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 workplace 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.
