DLP have teamed up with The Manx Workshop for the Disabled to extend our work into the wider community on the Isle of Man. The Manx Workshop provide a sheltered, therapeutic working environment for those who are less able to compete for commercial jobs, they provide training and develop skills that increase opportunities for disabled individuals in the open job market and support local businesses, organisations and the local community.
In September we commissioned the Manx Workshop to complete the assembly of our iCare electric shower display models. “This is a really positive working arrangement,” said the Workshop’s General Manager Peter Hindley. “We are extremely grateful to DLP. There is an obvious symbiosis in the service we provide, so it works really well for everyone.” The Workshop has now been providing this service for DLP for several months, which looks like continuing into a long term working relationship.”
Tim Baker, DLP Senior Executive Director, said, “This project worked very well for both ourselves and The Manx Workshop for the Disabled. We hope to continue to grow our relationship and to extend our work into the wider community on the Isle of Man. We look forward to a long lasting working partnership.”
