Your tour takes you around 3 local successful social enterprises, which provide employment opportunities to three very different communities.

We begin with a visit to Pathway Trust, where we hear their remarkable story of how just three guys with a shared belief and a unique idea have created an organisation offering a fresh start to people needing employment or new skills, those being released from prison and trying to reintegrate into society, and those needing accommodation assistance.

Next we have an incredible opportunity to visit Kilmarnock Enterprises to meet an amazing group of people, and experience a unique insight into the operations of a very diverse social enterprise. The tour of Kilmarnock will take you right through the factory where you will see e-waste being processed, products being packed and assembled, toys being manufactured, recycled glass being repurposed, products being refurbished, and food being packed. Not to mention a lot of smiles! Every day is different at Kilmarnock but one thing remains the same; their commitment to providing a fun, respectful, and inclusive workplace.

We have a special end to our tour with a visit to Can Do Catering, where you will learn about this successful catering social enterprise, and then have the opportunity to chat with the team while they proudly create a delicious afternoon tea for you to enjoy.
