Based in Gynedd, Menter Fachwen is a social enterprise offering furniture, produce as well as arts and crafts classes for the local community.
"Working to employ and train the disabled builds their confidence," Clearly So writes on their social business directory, "The Menter foundation also uses environmentally sourced materials and has a food-cooperative providing affordable fresh produce to the community." The training is offered in a variety of ways including woodworking, office jobs, recycling, catering and horticulture.
