Flared Enterprise

FLARES is a small social enterprise run by Cartrefi employees. Its purpose is to provide valued activities and work related opportunities for people with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues.

Their aim is to help people achieve their individual outcomes, gain work related skills and live more independently.

They produce items for sale such as printed Jute bags, T-shirts and craft items.

Flares also provide social opportunities for individuals through music expression, digital storytelling, and fundraising events.

They have a hub within the Bridgend Office where people can come and meet friends for a chat, keep fit on the Wi Fit, take part in screen printing or spend time doing craft work.
