Introduction to the workshop

We also offer a selection of vocational workshops at the Rashid Centre, for young people aged 18 years and above.

They are available for those young people who still require support in gaining employment skills and can continue with activities of daily living and gaining independence.

We offer a variety of experiences for young women in our textile and bakery workshop. For young men we offer carpentry, gardening, IT and printing. These experiences are not exhaustive and are being added to, and changed, following evaluation of their suitability for the young people.

The young people are involved in the production of goods that can be potentially sold to generate income for the Department.

Opportunities are always sought to enable the young people to gain employment outside of the Centre, should the young person be deemed to be suitable for paid work.
