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!

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"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."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
