“We are so immensely proud of our WorkAid team for winning this award” Said Rachel Benson, Deputy Manager of WorkAid at Aldlingbourne Trust.
Representatives of the Aldingbourne Trust attended the Arun Business Partnership Awards on Friday 15th November at the Hilton Avisiford Park Hotel, helping to celebrate the success of many local businesses.
Aldingbourne Trust were honoured to win the Employee/Team of the Year award, and on being presented the award Rachel said, “I am so immensely proud of our WorkAid team; without their sheer determination and hard work, people with learning disabilities or autism spectrum conditions would really struggle to access employment in their communities. Our staff change people’s lives; not just for the people they are supporting but also for employers. Thank you to all of the employers over the Arun district who have welcomed people with disabilities so warmly into their teams.”
The WorkAid team at Aldingbourne Trust work across West Sussex to support people with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions who have career dreams and aspirations but sometimes need a little support to help them reach them. Every member of the WorkAid team works in a fully person-centred way; they listen to the person’s perspectives without judgement or condemnation, they help every person to see where their strengths are and make realistic and achievable goals to get them where they want to be.
