Work

CheckIn Works and its subsidiary community interest company, Giraffe Trading together are Perthshire’s most innovative work-focused, employability partnership helping those experiencing long term and enduring disabilities, receive vocational training, work experience and lifeskills support.

Life

Trainees and volunteers enjoy a warm and friendly family-like atmosphere and can also access a range of other inclusion, quality of life and social activities including art groups, healthy living sessions, cinema, social trips and BBQs.

Learning

We encourage all our trainees and volunteers to consolidate their work skills and training by gaining accredited qualifications and we offer courses that are relevant to a wide range of future employment opportunities. We offer food hygiene, customer service, first aid, cooking skills and horticulture.

Together, CheckIn and Giraffe operate six social enterprise venues in Perth, supported by a team of volunteers offering different training and work development streams.

There are two city centre cafes, an outside catering and food production kitchen, lunch club and two garden centres and a wholesale plant nursery creating a wide range of work opportunities, supported by employability sessions and job clubs.
