Supporting Self Help Workplace

If you're part of a business in the Youngtown region looking for cleaning materials, look no further than Self Help Workplace. 

Self Help Workplace provides meaningful work to around 51 people with a disability in Youngtown.

The team uses rag cutting machines to make commercial cleaning cloths from recycled material and clothing for local businesses. And they’re a hit!

The cleaning cloths have been so popular, the team has been struggling to keep up with only two machines, but through our Community Fund, has just bought and installed a brand new rag cutter.

The team is delighted with the workshop’s latest addition.

“Our employees absolutely love to work and the purchase of a new rag cutter will allow us to build a stronger enterprise,” said Self Help Workplace General Manager Donna Bain.

“This will increase our ability to offer employment opportunities to people with a disability.”

We’re so proud to help an organisation that:

• Offers fun, inclusive work

• Helps local businesses

• Reduces material in landfill and is good for the environment

If you’re part of a non-profit group or know of one doing great things in your local community, we’d love to hear from you.
