Welcome to Acorn
Acorn Enterprises has been established for over twenty three years. As a registered charity and the trading arm of the Jersey Employment Trust, our aim is to provide employment, employment training, work experience and voluntary work for people with a disability and long term health condition. There are two areas to the business at Acorn; A horticultural nursery and the Woodshack recycled timber.
Our mission statement
"To empower & facilitate people with a disability and long term health condition in Jersey. To maximise their potential to gain and maintain open employment through individual training, education and support"
The Acorn Nursery and Acorn Woodshack are now well established. Our newest exciting development is the establishment of the Acorn Reusue Center. This is a social enterprise, envlovling the collection of goods from our depot, located at the La Collette Recycling site. These donated goods are to be taken to our shop at Acorn, cleaned and reconditioned where necessary, and sold. We hope to have this new area of business operational in the new year. As with all our business interests all profits generated are reused within the company.
