News: Making It Out

Posted on 18th July 2018

Making It Out is a new community workshop based in Portslade. It was set up to give people leaving prison an opportunity to learn new skills, gain experience and education with an aim to finding full time employment in the future.

Our directors have a variety of backgrounds ranging from teaching to probation, finance and social work.

We are looking for local businesses who are interested in commissioning us to make high quality products with a low carbon footprint and a positive social impact. We can make a wide range of products. Our facilities include woodworking machinery, a CAD/CAM suite, art and craft equipment, metalwork area, spray/sanding booth and hand tools. Our first project is a giant, rainbow coloured gull made out of wood and steel which will be displayed at Brighton Pride.

Please see our website for further details and don’t hesitate to contact us if you think we could create something for you!

Testimonials

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

Oliver Lashley , Director
(Pure Storm Digital Services )

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

Steve Mooney
(Steven Mooney Machinery)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
