Helping the Disabled Re-enter the Workplace in Greater Manchester and Cheshire





At Sky Based Solutions, we're always working toward a greener, more sustainable, better future for everyone.

We do mean everyone! One of our primary goals, as drone operators based in Manchester, is to see those who have had their careers taken from them, as a result of disability, regain their autonomy. When our founder was involved in a skydiving accident that resulted in a broken spine, pelvis and nerve damage, his life was changed forever. We want to provide opportunities for people who have shared that position, to find work, not only that they are suited for, but that they'll love. We provide disabled work placements in Manchester, training the next generation of drone operatives, while giving back to our community.

Our Workplace Mission.

Despite advancements in the employment rate of disabled people, there is still a wide gap between theirs and that of the general public. What's more, when disabled people do find work, they are frequently in lower-paying and less fulfilling roles – often in retail and administration. Currently, there is a severe lack of opportunity for disabled people in more active and outdoor-based lines of work.



What We Do.

The disabled community is vibrant and diverse, with a significant proportion of working-age disabled people having suffered life-transforming accidents. Previously, many of them had fulfilling careers and active lifestyles and would benefit from a dynamic, challenging working environment. Sky Based Solutions help solve these challenges, both with our commercial service and with our disabled work placements in Manchester. With SBS, you'll learn how to provide aerial inspections, surveys, and video and photography services for sustainable and community-based businesses.

Each Participant Will:

  • Be given an overview of the drone industry.
  • Gain advice on how to apply for their drone licence and training.
  • Be taught about mapping and editing software.
  • Work directly with clients.
  • Receive advice and support on grants available from the government and organisations.
  • Receive Peer-to-peer support.
  • Receive a grant directly from SBS, in support of their personal development and career pursuit.

Sourced Support.

Support in our disabled work placements in Manchester will be provided by volunteers within the sector, as well as local disabled charities, such as:

  • Breakthrough UK
  • Disability Rights UK
  • Manchester Community Central
