Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Seasons Greetings to all our Supporters and Customers
Thanks to everyone who have supported us throughout 2019. We hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas and New Year holiday.
We introduced a number of new products in the year including:- A New range of planters, Wellie Boot Holders, Suet Log Bird Feeders
We are looking at new products for 2020 too and as a sneak preview we are going to start working on Bat Boxes in the New Year.
As you may know Bat Conversation is very important not only for certain species but also for the environment and biodiversity. Some plants depend partly or wholly on bats to pollinate their flowers or spread their seeds, while other bats also help control pests by eating insects.
Working with local Bat Experts we have produced a Bat Box kit that we will start making in January 2020. Watch this space for further information in the New Year!
friends of Embark, was born out of the need to provide quality, stable homes and work experience for Adults with learning difficulties, who wish to live more independent lives.
Established in the summer of 2012, Friends of Embark was founded as a charitable trust. However has since grown and is now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), and registered with the Charity Commission in 2016. We are based in Haywards Heath, West Sussex and managed by eight trustees.
Working closely with Embark who provide high quality supported living services, the philosophy behind Friends of Embark is to enable such adults to experience life to their best ability. Not only by enabling them to live more independently in secure and stable homes but also to support projects and work experience providing:- a sense of purpose, self development, a sense of achievement and also giving them opportunities to integrate with the local and wider community
We are very keen to support projects to show that our Adults can help support themselves and not just rely on benefits and charity alone. Our work experience projects are designed to help them produce products that can be sold to raise funds giving them a sense of the real world where we all have to work in order to benefit ourselves.
