TESG/Occupational Day Care
Yateley Industries provides Supported Employment through TESG Funding, delivering employment training and helping our employees to find and enter mainstream employment.
As well as training and employment, Yateley Industries provides Occupational Day Care for clients that require extra support.
Training for all the above is carried out in our workshop on an on-going basis.
The workshop operates from 9am until 4pm with a one-hour lunch break. The office is open from 9am to 4pm.
Yateley Industries has its own factory on-site, which employs at any one time circa 80 people with disabilities, and supports customers on the Occupational Day Care Programme.
Because of the funding streams we are able to compete on price and quality with mainstream outlets. The factory is operated on a commercial basis and our customers are gained through competition with mainstream providers. The work we do in our factory is in the fields of specialised packing, which includes machine shrink wrapping, boxing and bar coding. We also undertake light assembly and hand packing work.
As a further stream of commercial income, Yateley Industries run a dedicated delivery and collection service for new and old cooking oil.
Anyone interest in this service please contact us on 01252 872337 or email us here.
Yateley Industries has been in existence for circa 80 years. There have been other sheltered factories and accommodation around the country for disabled people. However, with the decreasing income from Central Government and the Local Authorities, these factories have become less and less with only a handful in existence.
Because of the decreases in income, Yateley have suffered financially. Therefore, we have had to look at other resources to provide an income – so apart from the work we do in our factory – to supplement this income we have opened a charity shop, building further accommodation which will provide us with rental income and renting part of our premises to a restaurant entrepreneur.
On an individual basis, and where appropriate, Yateley Industries assist people with disabilities to move into mainstream employment and ‘independent’ living. For people who are able to make this transition, Yateley, through their dedicated support staff, monitor and enable this transition to take place and to be successful and sustained.
