Over the past year, we have helped 900 people with autism or a learning, physical or sensory disability to find work placements through our Surrey Choices EmployAbility service.
The success of the service was celebrated recently at our Making a Difference awards where we highlighted what a difference being within a work environment can make to our customers lives. However, it’s not just our customers who have seen the advantages – some of the biggest employers in the country have benefitted from adding hard working, enthusiastic and skilled individuals to their teams.
The Walton-on-Thames Costa team who work with Jonathan have been incredible in their encouragement for him. Jonathan receives one to one support and has made a real effort to work hard. He has made lots of new friends at work.
Costa Coffee was founded in 1978 by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa. In 2016, it was named the UK’s Favourite Coffee Shop for its sixth consecutive year.
