CFS named “Mentor of the Year”

The NHS run Project Choice has named Community Furniture Store (Ryedale) as their Mentor of the Year.

Project Choice is a work based programme which supports young people (16-25 years) who have learning disabilities, difficulties or autism with the social and work based skills needed to enable them to become work ready and help them to understand the pathway in to employment. Placements typically last for 12 working weeks but can vary depending on the needs of the individual.
