Giraffe Trading Community Interest Company
Known locally as Giraffe, due to our social enterprise cafe in Perth, we support people over the age of 16 from all over Perth and Kinross and beyond.
Our primary aim is to help people with severe and complex barriers, such as learning disabilities, autism and mental ill health, to make the transition towards inclusion, socialisation and, if appropriate, into meaningful work. We achieve this by providing relevant supported work experience, vocational skills and personal development.
We focus on overlooked aspects, such as confidence building, which enables our trainees to move their careers forward as well as being an active and included part of our local communities. The charity was set up to help groups that were overlooked, denied opportunities and not integrated into the local community.
Our trading arm, Giraffe, was primarily set up as there were not enough employers able to or prepared to facilitate the type of supported employment and development that we offer.
