An organisation in Jersey which trains and employs islanders with disabilities and mental health issues says it needs more funding to support its work.
Acorn Enterprise says it has the facilities in place to train everyone it works with, but is calling for more money so that it can employ more staff.
It says it currently has 34 people on the waiting list to join its employment programme, and some have been waiting for months.
Of the 34 people on the waiting list, 46% have a mental health issue and 23% have a learning difficulty. A further 20% have a physical impairment, while 11% are on the autism spectrum.
Since it opened its Acorn Reuse facility in Trinity, the social enterprise has created 50 new jobs and more than 400 training opportunities.
