Trade School Industries


Trade School Industries is a charitable trust, a social enterprise, and a therapeutic community, giving formally incarcerated people the chance to turn their lives around through employment.

Trade School Kitchen is a social enterprise funded by the Trade School Industries Trust. This café is Trade School Industries’ first venture to bridge the gap between incarceration and employment. It is currently in the process of being built. Within 5 years of opening, the Trust aims to have the café run entirely by those with a prison past.

Celia would have been so supportive of the work this Trust is doing to provide employment – and more than that – support for people coming out of prison. This work particularly grabbed us because we have a member of our team that has personally had interactions with Lauren and the team at Arohata prison. Their help is authentic, innovative, and compassionate.
