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.

David and Tracy have worked for First Community Health and Care for nearly 20 years. They both work four hours a week doing some really important jobs around the office including filing, shredding, photocopying and keeping the stationary cupboard stocked up. Tracy told us: “I love to keep the stationary cupboards tidy so staff can always find what they’re looking for.”
