The Brick Works offers training to increase the employment opportunities for people who are unemployed for a variety of reasons.
This may include homelessness or recently housed people referred by the Brick, people who have been released from prison, people with mental health issues, people with low employability skills, and the long term unemployed. The Brick Works has a small staff team, mentors running their own small businesses, and volunteer mentors. Recycling and reuse is key to the Brick Works.
The Brick Works is also open to the public for the sale of recycled, upcycled and handmade furniture and other items. It is also the home of Gearing Up, our renowned in-house bicycle repair shop.
