Social enterprise i-did support these individuals to gain the skills, confidence and work experience that enables them to move forward and have economic independence. Working with the local government, they employ people on a six-month/year basis, training them in the art of producing acoustic interior products, bags and accessories all from recycled felt. However, they offer much more than just a job. i-did gives people a place to meet and socialise, combining work-based coaching and guidance to help get them their next job.
Our partnership with i-did supports this reintegration work and also provides i-did IKEA waste textile
materials so they can turn it into new products, contributing to a more circular economy. A win-win for all.
