Welcome to Stanley’s Training Project

We are a not for profit organisation specifically set up to support people who have not had the chance to gain any type of employment or training.  We promote community cohesion and provide services that ensure people with learning disabilities and dementia are not marginalised.

Our mission statement is:

“To promote social inclusion through enabling and equipping people with disabilities to gain opportunities by developing their personal and practical skills and talents.”

We are aiming to help people gain the skills they need to go into employment. We support people to develop their skills, gain confidence and enhance the opportunities available to them. It is important that people develop their skills in a real setting at their own pace, with the support that they need. That’s exactly what we give to people. We utilise the skills of the people we take through our project in real-life situations that benefit the local community. Through our Employability Skills Café’s on a Tuesday and Wednesday at Dewsbury Moor Sure Start and the Friday Activity Café at the Church of the Nazarene, Dewsbury we provide a lunch service to the general public and people with learning disabilities and dementia.

The café’s give our students the chance to practice what they have learned in a real-life setting, taking orders, interacting with customers, making the food, serving the food and clearing away. The changes we see in the students is exceptional…

Our motto is:  ”Work it, live it, love it!”

We value:

  • Honesty.
  • Respect.
  • Achieving potential.
  • Supportive attitudes.
  • An enterprising approach.

That’s what we aim to achieve and what everyone involved works towards.
