Discover U - Wollaston

Discover U - Wollaston

Discover U is a charity working to help adults with learning disabilities into employment. We believe that everybody who wants to should have the opportunity to work and we support them to do that with a wide range of programmes and opportunities. Our aim is to provide work related experience to adults with some level of learning disability or others similarly disadvantaged because of physical disability.

We have been helped by a local councillor and MP for the area to set up the new charity and many in the nearby community such as Porter and Woodman, Waitrose and Citizen Home Gift shop have been outstanding with their support.

Discover U operates by recycling wood, furniture and other materials turning them into items for sale and return any monies back into the charity in order to fund further projects.. 

We also operate a tea room which our members can access to gain workplace skills.

All of our staff have safeguarding qualifications and volunteers who work with us have been DBS checked.
