Former Wigan Council worker says Just BU

A NEW social enterprise dedicated to transforming the lives of people with learning disabilities will open next month.

Former Wigan Council worker Justin Fellows set up Just BU after taking voluntary redundancy last year, and will offer a range of practical skills and training courses to help people with disabilities live independently or find work.

Any surplus money at the end of the year will be ploughed back into new resources or helping the community. The enterprise will initially be run with help from volunteers, but Justin hopes to expand to take on paid staff.

He said: “I want to break down traditional views and help them lead independent lives.”
