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?
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
