January 2021 – Yateley Industries

Princes Mead is proud to support Yateley Industries as our first Charity in 2021!  We hope to be running some events later in the year, when government guidelines permit, and we hope that you will find what Yateley do inspiring!

Yateley Industries mission is to sustain and increase the opportunities for people with disabilities in rewarding employment, both in our workshop and mainstream, with an occupation that enables a disabled person to contribute to society through work. Yateley Industries is a Charity that has been supporting People with Disabilities, since 1963 with the aim to encourage each individual to fulfil his or her own potential, both at work and at home. This is achieved by providing paid meaningful employment in our supported workshop or charity shop, and assisted accommodation where desirable. Employees work towards identified goals, encompassing areas such as financial management, production output and social integration. Progress towards achieving these goals is monitored and aided by our professional and supportive staff and is recorded. We work hard to ensure our people achieve personal satisfaction from activities, developing knowledge and skills, receive sufficient income to meet their individual living and leisure needs. Yateley Industries employ 85 employees, of which 72 are disabled and 42 are residents on site in specially adapted accommodation. To be able to work in our factory or live in our accommodation, the person must have a disability.
