Our Businesses

KibbleWorks is our collective of small social enterprises that provide training and employment to marginalised young people (16-24), particularly those leaving care or custody.

We have several businesses based at our KibbleWorks Campus:

  • Community Garden
    gardeners growing fresh seasonal and local produce in our sustainable kitchen garden
  • MetalWorks
    metalwork business that manufactures and repairs metal items
  • FrameWorks
    picture framing business provides the services of a picture framer commended by the Fine Art Trade Guild
  • MowerWorks
    grasscutting and lawnmower maintenance business
  • GroundBreakers
    gardening business that provides services from basic gardening to landscaping
  • Project Oskar
    re-use and recycle business that also offers services such as painting and decorating and property clearance
  • Kibble Construction
    construction business that undertakes jobs of any size on any type of property
  • PromoWorks
    promotional product design business that provides a variety of promotional goods such as mugs and t-shirts
  • Knibbles
    catering business that provides hot and cold meals for functions and events as well as to Kibble staff and young people
  • Road Works
    vehicle mechanics business that offers a complete range of services to drivers

Research shows that a period of unemployment of six months or more before the age of 25 has a scarring effect on a young person’s future. We work to prevent that happening to young people who have already experienced considerable disadvantage in their lives.

Placements at KibbleWorks offer the opportunity to learn the skills particular to each business but also to experience a positive work environment in which they can learn more general work skills such as timekeeping and prioritising tasks as well as achieve the self worth and satisfaction inherent in a good day’s work.

Through these structured placements, young people can prepare themselves for the world of work and independent living.

All KibbleWorks businesses operate as social enterprises, meaning that our primary purpose is to benefit society by setting young people on a path to a constructive life and any profits produced by our business is channeled into working to fulfil this purpose. To consolidate our position as a social enterprise, we subscribe to The Code, a voluntary code of contact for social enterprises in Scotland.
