We are a social enterprise project started by the Dacon Trust, whose purpose is to offer genuine and meaningful work skills training opportunities to adults and young people with learning disabilities.
In our Colchester hub, Trainees are inspired to achieve their Level Best through growing, making, baking and creating – with our team of volunteers and staff encouraging them every step of the way.
Level Best Enterprises is home to over 60 Trainees and delivers more than 110 sessions each week.
The sessions are designed to encourage independence, creativity and develop work skills such as teamwork, time management and relationship building. The sessions cover four key areas, including cooking, making, gardening and creating, enabling trainees to explore their talents and gain valuable work experience across each of the organisation’s main enterprises.
Trainees are invited to spend time learning an exciting range of skills across each of the four enterprises and receive extensive training which can be applied outside of Level Best.
Our Enterprise Hub on St John’s Street, Colchester, is the ideal place for trainees to experience a variety of development opportunities, ranging from face-to-face customer interaction in the café or event marketing for the art gallery.
Everything we do at Level Best Enterprises centres around our trainees. From growing fresh ingredients on our allotment, to designing the packaging for our range of seasonal produce, each trainee is welcome to try out new things and discover where their interests and strengths lie.
