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.
Hannah Rogers, Nicola Campbell and Michael Barry visit patients who are staying in East Surrey Hospital and carry out home visits to patients. They also fold the donated clothes as well as the leaflets and flyers.
Our customers have shown a real growth in confidence and they enjoy the roles they’ve been given. The team at British Red Cross actively work with us and our customers to provide the best support they can.
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. They are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies.
They help vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities.
Support at Home (British Red Cross) provide short-term practical and emotional support at home to help people regain their independence.
