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?
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"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. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
