A furniture business built on quality and care
Highland BlindCraft makes highquality beds, but that’s not all it does. It’s all about making people feel involved, valued and cared for. Highland BlindCraft’s roots lie in teaching the blind with the belief that if someone has the willingness to work, then paid employment should be an option for all people including those who suffer from a disability. The deprivation of sight has been shown to be no disqualification for a life of ordinary usefulness nor has it stood in the way of pre-eminent success in almost every department of human labour.When the factory was established, their employees were given the same rights and conditions as able-bodied people in the workplace and would not be further disadvantaged – and the factory is still run on the same principle today.As a charity and a business, the employees’ wellbeing is at the very heart of the charities philosophy and practice. The workforce could almost be described as a family – a close family looking out for one another and supporting each other in their individual development and quality of life expectations. Highland BlindCraft is committed to lifelong learning and improving the quality of life for all the people they are responsible for. It’s not all about making amazing beds; it’s so much more.
