This is how we do it – promoting social enterprise that is! R2W have been hosting visitors from Northumberland County Council. The Commissioners from the Northumberland Adult Services team- were on a fact finding mission to the R2W nerve centre in Kendal.
R2W Regional Manager Pete Bradbury; “Tonia and Alan were keen to know more about what has made R2W so successful -and looking into replicating something like it in Northumberland. They were particularly impressed by the life skills area -where R2W give customers support in doing things many of us take for granted like doing the washing, making a bed etc.” Pete also explained how having the bulky waste collection through South Lakeland District Council enables us to join up meaningful opportunities for day care customers – through things like retail, recycling and training.
