In addition to employment services, The Jersey Employment Trust also runs a retail outlet at Acorn Enterprises, selling plants from the Acorn Nursery. These retail outlets support the work undertaken by the Trust by generating an income, 100% of which is reinvested back into the service.
These retail areas also used by our clients to gain valuable work experience and training, in preparation for moving into open employment.
