Not just a production line
We are especially proud of our partnership with the Camden Society, where we offer training and employment opportunities to people with learning disabilities. Our packaging and distribution centre is not just a production line; it carries real, every day opportunities to enable people with learning disabilities to gain new skills, confidence and ultimately play a more equal role in our society, helping make Sun & Seed a more inclusive employer.
So each jar, bottle or bag of Sun & Seed has a little story behind it!
The Camden Society was founded on an ambition for people to achieve their full potential, able to live their lives free from fear and discrimination. Since 1985, when they opened their first community cafe in Camden Town, London, The Camden Society has been at the forefront of organisations providing training and employment support to people with disabilities.
The Camden Society creates in-work training opportunities and jobs for people with disabilities who want to work in a range of sectors including catering and hospitality, warehouse and distribution, administration and IT. Sun & Seed provides two apprenticeships to people with a learning disability, supporting them to gain skills and vocational qualifications within a real work setting of a warehouse.
They are part of our team and fully involved and included in day to day tasks within the warehouse; keeping up to date stock levels, fulfilling orders, packaging goods and are an integral part of our team.
