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.
Genuine Solutions approached us and subsequently took on Damien using ‘access to work’. From day one Damien has impressed and progressed to working full time.
Viv Sage is Director of People and she told us:
“We are extremely proud of Damian’s Outstanding Achievement award and delighted to see him thriving with us. We’re passionate about our community and working with Surrey Choices is helping Genuine Solutions reach out to find more great people like Damian to join our business. We are thrilled that they are recognising our contribution.”
