About Us

April  2010 saw Wellingborough’s Finedon Road Industrial Estate become the home of the first ever social enterprise lorry park.  The 52 space parking project was established in partnership with the Think3e group.

Our aim is to provide innovative lorry park services for the haulage industry whilst providing life skills, accredited training, work experience and employment to those most disadvantaged in the labour market.

We help people who have a wide range of issues including: homeless, long term unemployed, mental health, learning difficulties, NEETS (not in education, employment or training), and  ex offenders.

The Northamptonshire Lorry Park sits in an 8 acre site next to 128,000 sq ft building which hosts several Northamptonshire social enterprises. The site now boasts a top three largest employer in the district.

Think 3e Strategic Manager Trevor Lynn said, “Well delighted to launch NLPS here in Wellingborough. We expect to create over 350 jobs across our site this year. We’re delighted to bring such an innovative project to not only the haulage industry but also the third sector.

It’s easy to replicate and franchise and hope it will help tackle worklessness all over the UK. There’s a massive need for quality lorry park services and our social enterprise is well placed to deliver it.”
