Carlyon Print, Backed up in Print
Carlyon Print, A Workshop for Disabled People, that is under threat from closure by Brent Council, gained a powerful place in print, with the Wembley & Kingsbury Times publishing another article about the important training and print shop in Wembley, London UK
Labour and Conservative members of local authority were on hand at Carlyon Print last Friday. For once both the ruling party and their shadow were on the same page, as they offered their support to Carlyon and gave a rallying cry to the council and the general public.
Carlyon Centre was established in 1978 as Carlyon Industries, it's had a long history and a proud name when it comes to offering training and employment to disabled people. Its the last Workshop training and employing disabled people in London.
Mismanagement outside of Carlyon over the last several years has seen the training centre and print shop drained of its resources. The Centre has seen its share of problems but keeps bouncing back from the brink, thanks to the delicated work of its workers and management who are determined to fight with their last drop of printers ink.
Four Petitions are currently underway by the Family's and Parents of the Disabled staff at Carlyon Print they currently have 930 signatures in total.
