Progression Wherever people are, the Shekinah teams encourage individuals to visualise a future and find their purpose. Shekinah’s award-winning training and employment programmes offer people an opportunity to re-engage with learning in a safe, nurturing, fun and motivating environment. As well as therapeutically-based personal development programmes, Shekinah also runs a construction skills programme in Plymouth and horticulture programme in Torbay. Shekinah’s multi-skilled teams offer wrap around support throughout engagement and finding your reason for 'being' is at the heart of what is achieved. When interested, individuals are encouraged to explore volunteering and employment options and there are opportunities to participate in work trials with one of Shekinah’s business partners as well as engaging with Shekinah’s social enterprise and charity shops. Making social connections has been proven to impact positively on poor mental health and all Shekinah sites offer informal and focused groups and activities which facilitate meaningful and positive relationships. Some of our courses are funded by the European Union, Plymouth City Council and V Learning Network.
