Registered in 2005, Red2Green supports people from 16 years living in Cambridgeshire and nearby, with complex learning disabilities and/or autism. We have two established services on site: Aspirations and Options. Both services run for 50 weeks a year, 5 days a week. Our charity objective is to increase opportunities in education, training, work, and leisure for people with disabilities and special needs and offer respite for their carers in Cambridgeshire.
We also work with local companies to help support their autistic employees, from workplace assessments to making reasonable adjustments. We can offer tailored support for your business, including 1-to-1 support sessions and larger workshops on autism awareness and acceptance in the workplace. We offer talks on 'improving the workplace for neurodiversity' and 'the impact of business and social activities on autistic people's wellbeing'.
Having originated from community education, we promote the wellbeing and education of our learners so that they can feel confident in themselves to live independently and gain work experience. As each of our clients come to us with unique needs, we provide tailored training and support to help them achieve their goals as well as break down barriers towards employment.
This training ranges from life skills such as growing fruit and vegetables in our community garden and learning how to cook with them, promoting health and wellbeing, and gaining the tools to live independently; to formal AQA Unit Award Scheme certificates such as Presentation Skills, Awareness of Personal Qualities and Skills, and Rights and Responsibilities in the Workplace.
We are experts in helping our learners find both voluntary and paid work experience, whilst also raising awareness in our community of learner conditions.
