''The support the Aldingbourne Trust has given me has helped me find paid employment and in particular to keep up my motivation to continue job searching and to continue to keep learning during the lockdowns where little job advertising was going on. I have been helped by my support worker in having a friendly and understanding ear to count on when ever I had an issue I wasn’t able to resolve myself.''
''I have found the support I’ve been given has really helped me with my confidence having had a major setback after my last job.
I am very happy that I am doing my course at B's and I am also doing a course for Sussex Aspire.
Doing an online course is very different but it actually works really well.
I feel comfortable talking with my employment consultant, and I feel she puts a lot of care into her role.
The current circumstances regarding Covid are difficult, but I am getting by with the support that I can. I look forward to the future after Covid and receiving the vaccination and being able to get back into employment.
I look forward to working more with employment consultant and benefitting from all the support she gives."
WorkAid at the Aldingbourne Trust run a service to match adults with learning disabilities and/or autism with suitable work placements. By getting to know our clients, we find out what they are passionate about and focus on the abilities of the individual, looking for suitable employment opportunities within the local community.
We are really pleased to announce that we have assisted 45 people into fabulous new jobs, and 5 people into training, since April 1st.. Bearing in mind the lock down we think this is great news and something to celebrate. They have got jobs in the care, retail, office and warehouse sectors.
Sarah has continued to support me, as there has been a lot to learn, but now I am feeling more confident and am glad to be back at work.”
