Welcome to Patchwork People - a ‘value driven company’. Patchwork People offers a wealth of public service knowledge, skills and experience gained in schools, children’s, centres, youth and community services over 30 years. This, combined with very recent experience of evidencing social impact, gaining investment  and the launch of our award winning Labelled model as a social franchise makes us a living example of doing things differently.

Gill and Marj

established the company in 2011 – beginning with market and festival trading with young unemployed volunteers they have bring a wealth of experience to the business world.

They have both had successful careers delivering public services as teacher, head teacher, youth and community lead and senior officer of local authorities across the North East.

Gill and Marj now offer a range of coaching, consultancy and training to other organisations to achieve successful growth. 

'Labelled' offers a unique ‘customer facing’ learning environment, a safe base, for young people to thrive. ‘Labelled’ support young people, with additional needs, who are furthest from the job market by creating opportunities for enterprise, self-employment and skill development.

Labelled offers young people practical life skills training, ensuring young people become familiar with community resources and help them manage their own personal lives.  Performance is measured against soft outcomes alongside the accreditation framework and employment success.
