In September our Karten CTEC Centre based in Belfast, Northern Ireland moved to a new, purpose-built workspace. We also took the opportunity to re-brand the social enterprise from The Orchardville Business Centre to Orchardville Works, highlighting the project’s focus upon employability and inclusion.
The new, larger space will allow us to expand the range of services we currently offer by having more storage available for customer’s work and provide a broader range of on the job experiences for project participants. Having moved in less than three weeks ago we are certainly finding our feet and enjoying the new space.
We are also on the brink of launching our own handcrafted product (a first for us!), so our talented team of participants have been working hard to produce a range of genuine Irish Linen scarves:
These have been branded as Worthy “crafts with a cause” and will be on shelves soon in Lisburn and Hillsborough, Northern Ireland.
We are looking forward to the future as we continue to strive to improve our participants’ learning experiences with help and support from the Karten Network.
