Kilmarnock's Purpose

People with disabilities have long been marginalised and undervalued

At Kilmarnock we aim to change all that. We continue to uphold the values of founder Miss Christabel Robinson. She understood that everyone is uniquely valuable and deserving of compassion, support, empowerment and respect.


To provide a supportive, dynamic and connected environment where people can realise their individual potential as a contributing member of their community

By providing a supportive and enriching paid work environment, we have been teaching adults with a range of abilities, the skills needed to transition into open employment. Through professional training, social development, health and wellbeing initiatives and ongoing support, we are showing our employees their individual value and giving them the confidence and skills they need for success.

Everything at Kilmarnock is a balancing act between core social objectives and achieving incredible results in a highly competitive open market. We are very proud of the quality of work we produce and it gives our team great satisfaction and confidence to know that the contracts won, are won on merit. We provide a number of services at a competitive price, including, collating and packing, assembly, labelling, food re-packing, shrink wrapping, woodworking, refurbishing, electronic waste recycling, and much more.

The amazing team at Kilmarnock are provided with the safety and support of a stable and inclusive environment. They are empowered to open their eyes to a new future where they are valued, respected members of the community.
