WE . BY CHANGING LIVES
Anyone who, for whatever reason, is on the sidelines of society, deserves a job opportunity.
We offer a safe workplace to people with a distance from the labor market.
With our workshop we create local impact, with an international vision.
Our focus is on social and local production, with a focus on people and the environment.
Impact-Spots is a non-profit social workshop. We provide work to people with a distance from the labor market, such as refugees (status holders / New Dutch) and participants on social welfare, WIA and Wajong. Impact-Spots is a safe place for people who are now on the sidelines of society. Men and women who have the potential and want to work on themselves and their future. The participants work on their (Dutch) employee skills through work-learning, work-language and work-fit training projects, so that they can move on to a paid job after the training ends.
Our goal: to create social impact by helping people on welfare to get a paid job as soon as possible.
Male social Workplace
In our social workshop in Overloon, wooden products are produced for various customers, such as bee hotels, natural elements, and custom-made promotional gifts.
''Impact-Spots is an inspiring workplace. A place where vulnerable participants can work and learn safely.”
Female social workplace
Our expansion plans are aimed at opening an all-female sheltered workplace. For women, by women. A safe working environment where women can work on their lives and careers. In order to finance the workplace, we will develop and produce products made out of “recycled textiles”. Production surpluses from the fashion and textile industry serve as raw material for new home decoration products such as place mats, napkin rings and wine cooler sleeves.
Our impact makers
We are there for people who have difficulty connecting to the current labor market. We offer a place to work and learn for people on welfare, WIA, Wajong and refugees. However, we are not a daytime activity center.
In the male workshop, mainly products are made from local Dutch wood. All products are produced by hand and with respect for people and the environment. In addition to standard bee hotels, natural elements and business gifts, a lot of custom-made products are also produced.
In the female workshop we will mainly work with recycled materials of textiles and leather. Production surpluses from the fashion and textile industry serve as raw material for new, sustainable accessories such as place mats, napkin rings and wine cooler sleeves. The products will soon be sold internationally under the brand name: Ladies of Decor. Below you can see the first sketches of the products. Behind the scenes we work hard on the final designs.
