Pet products with a conscience – think workability, not disability!


Our long experience of employing people with disabilities makes us well placed to understand the barriers they can face when trying to get a foot on employment ladder.  

We also get to see, first-hand, the benefits employment can bring – from enhanced wellbeing, confidence and work skills to greater independence. 

Our work placement schemes are designed to support people who are struggling in their quest for work, whether through disability or other life problems. 

We provide tailored packages of support that include training, qualifications and work experience in a real production environment. Our aim is to get the best out of everyone, whatever their disability or background, and take them that step closer to finding employment.
