Workbridge is a vocational education service, which has been developed to support people living with a mental health need, autism, learning need or brain injury to gain life, vocational, and employment skills through a mixture of vocational and skills-led sessions, and work experience.  

Our learning sessions are delivered within one of 5 Vocational Hubs: 

  • Creative Arts and Innovation  
  • Horticulture and the Natural Environment  
  • Design Technology and Engineering  
  • Food and Health  
  • Business and Administration  

Each of these Hubs offer a range of sessions to help introduce and improve on key independence and employment skills. They are also each linked with a range of work experience opportunities with St Andrew’s Healthcare, Workbridge and in the community. 

Our learners gain employment and life skills which are not only meaningful but also essential in ensuring that many of them can transition seamlessly into volunteering or paid employment.   

As you visit our garden centre, coffee shop, charity shop or creative studios, you will meet our learners working towards improving their skills in customer service, catering or logistics to name a few. You may also meet our learner volunteers, who have acquired these skills and are now able to volunteer independently in some of our retail areas. You'll not only be tempted by our amazing coffee shop menu, unique gift items and high-quality plants, but you'll also get to see for yourself how we help transform lives and enable our learners to realise their potential. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Workbridge.
