Learning Disability Work Experience Week 2015
In November 2015 Smith Craven took part in Mencap Learning Disability week. Abigail Barker came to work alongside our Admin team. Abigail was a delight and enjoyed working alongside our team and we hope that she benefitted from the experience. We certainly gained from working with her!
There are 1.4 million people with a learning disability in the UK. Mencap works to support people with a learning disability, their families and carers by fighting to change laws, improve services and access to education, employment and leisure facilities. Mencap supports thousands of people with a learning disability to live their lives the way they want. www.mencap.org.uk
Managing partner said “It was a fantastic experience for us to partner with Mencap on this project and Abigail lifted our souls. I would strongly recommend employers to explore this option for themselves as it’s such a valuable for both the volunteer and the organisation’s staff”
