A Brief About The Charity
The organisation has changed and developed dramatically over the years. Originally a small enterprise that assisted a handful of clients, we are now an established charity offering a comprehensive, pan-disability service, which ensures that support is provided for people of all abilities. In 2016 we worked with 565 people and placed 208 into new paid employment as well as supporting 296 people in their paid work.
Today, via Acorn Enterprises, we also offer a wide range of products and services to both the public and private sector. Acorn Enterprises is located in Trinity and is the centre for the trading and skills development aspects of the Jersey Employment Trust.
- Acorn Nursery – supplying a quality range of bedding plants as well as perennials and shrubs
- Acorn Reuse Centre – retailing reused goods which have been donated via the Household Reuse and Recycling Centre
- Acorn Woodshack – a wood recycling workshop/store for reclaimed timber, up-cycled wooden furniture and gifts
- Acorn Cafe – offering home cooked local food, serving breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas
All trading income generated at Acorn is reinvested to further support our clients
