Profile: Oaklea, 07th Feb, 2018
Oaklea Trust's Annual Report for 2017 is now available and its interactive! This is the Oaklea Trust's first fully digital Annual Report.
“There have been some significant changes in the last 12 months which has seen growth for our CIC (Community Interest Company) Right2Work based in Kendal who now support over 150 people finding employment as well as increasing the number of skill types being taught at the Kendal day opportunities base.
The Appleby Hub is going from strength to strength with the Café now open 4 days a week and so many partnerships with other local groups and charities being developed.
New initiatives have been developed by our employee teams and customers across the north of England linking customers with their communities; from making and selling jam to becoming dementia champions or planning the provision of day time activities to reduce loneliness and isolation.
This has been a successful year with the charity meeting its objectives and achieving a good financial surplus although there has been some refocus and consolidation of certain areas of operation. We will continue to focus on meeting the needs of our customers; to believe that our role is to listen, try harder and change as we need to, ensuring we provide excellent support to the people we work for and the communities in which they live.”
