AALFY in Sheffield is a social enterprise devoted to developing human potential. Our mission is to support those who are socially isolated by providing quality learning experiences through fun and creative programmes.
Our Learn|Create|Sell project is a creative and practical course for the unemployed. It is a collaboration with Hantu, a Sheffield-based fashion label. Each participant will be taught the skills to produce a commercial product on a laser cutter and a shop will then launch their start-up business. Participants will have the opportunity to network with industry experts and entrepreneurs along the way, and at the end they will gain a nationally-recognised qualification.
The funding we’ve secured will be used to help us build up a small group of community leaders and entrepreneurs, who will run a series of workshops for the 75 plus participants of our programme.
