SkillsPlus and BRACE

SkillsPlus and BRACE are two fellow non-profit organisations that merged in 2013. We merged because we know that together we can make a collaborative effort to improve lives and strengthen communities. Our mission is to empower people through education, training and employment.

As a non-profit organisation, any profit that we make is invested back into the community either by being put back into programs and services delivered, or by going towards the development of new programs that benefits the community.
