Here is a request for work from a lad who has a learning disability. Ideally he would like to work with cars. He contacted me by phone and then sent me this message:-
From the age of three to nineteen I studied at Chailey Heritage these following subjects — Maths, Science, French, English and Food technology. I was also awarded a certificate for swimming and horse-riding.
I then studied art at Treloar Collage, which included — painting, drawing, sculpture and photography. Before graduating, I studied Independent Living, which I enjoyed as it assisted me in shopping for myself and cooking.
I have learning disabilities and I’m in a wheelchair. Do you have any jobs that might be suitable?
