PRLog - Dec. 7, 2011 - BARNSLEY, U.K. -- Moorland Plastics, a supported employment facility has recently moved to new premises on the outskirts of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, increasing its ability to provide provisions to reduce NEET numbers in the area.

Since its inception in 1966, Moorland Plastics has provided employment opportunities for people with disabilities, offering transferable skills in manufacturing, as well as providing personal and social support.
