I’ve been working tirelessly for what feels like months, getting everything ready for the opening. The list of jobs was staggering! I’ve had many a sleepless night and stressful day in the build up, but it was all worth it; I’m beaming with pride and satisfaction right now.
I don’t know if you know but from 9–15 November, it's Mencap’s Learning Disabilities Work Experience Week. The aims of the week are to provide people with a learning disability a taste of a real work environment, and to show employers, and the public too, the benefits of employing someone with a learning disability.
