The Aldingbourne Trust is dedicated to helping local businesses, communities and people with learning disabilities and / or autism to enjoy life, together.
Jason started working with WorkAid, he had a number of paid jobs in the past and at present volunteers at the Mind Charity Shop in Bognor . He was very keen to get some form of paid work, and presented a very refreshing attitude, being willing to try virtually anything. He was also aware of how, in the past, his forthright, open and honest expression of his views had worked against him, in a work situation.
Jason was diagnosed with High-Functioning Autism in August 2017 and had struggled to find a position within an organisation that worked for him and the employer.
After exploring a number of options, Jason, himself, came up with the idea of being a Deliveroo cycle courier in Chichester.
Workaid supported Jason in taking out the relevant personal insurance and registering him as self-employed with HMRC. They also supported Jason with his initial contact with his Deliveroo Rep in Chichester.
