Clear Paws

Clear Sky Australia is passionate about creating opportunities for its participants to build independence and capacity to live with as much autonomy as possible. Noticing that employment training opportunities for people with a disability are extremely limited in Newcastle we made the decision to open Clear Paws which provides the perfect supported environment to develop employability skills.

The Produce Collective

The CSA Produce Collective is a small business operation designed to provide skills and education around running and operating a small business. The business in mind is a Fruit and Vegetable Box delivery service. One week the participants will work on collecting orders via phone and building a call register, flyer distribution and marketing, design and write a leaflet that will go into each box providing customers with a recipe (provided by FOTW), a wellness tip (Provided by Be Clear) and a growing home grown fruit and veg tip (Provided by Clear Outdoors) and many more. The second week will consist of participants accessing a local fruit and vegetable market or store to collect produce to then return back for boxing and distribution. Participants will finish the day going door to door delivering the fruit and vegetable boxes.
