Disabled people are more than twice as likely to be unemployed as non-disabled people. There are so many talented people who bring valuable skills and want to work, but are not given opportunity in the workplace because of a misguided view on disability. We will be providing supported work positions for people with disabilities, with the aim of giving them the experience to achieve a full time role in the hospitality and catering sector, ultimately giving them financial independence
By providing these trainees with support from the BPK team in a community setting we can easy them into work giving them social confidence, motivation and the skills needed for a full time role.
We will use these donations towards funding 5 supported trainee positions for people with disabilities. They'll receive an award winning program of training, regular checkin's with a supervisor whilst also allowing them the freedom to thrive in a hospitality environment.
Working with other organizations we have been able to secure long-term full time roles for trainees who complete the work placement. This means that theses trainees future can be bright
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Brixton People's Kitchen. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
