Providing internships for people with disabilities
As part of our commitment to helping people find a rewarding career in care, Maesbrook have been working closely with Enable, a wonderful organization based here in Shropshire which provides a specialist employment service for people with disabilities or mental health needs.
Enable work with small businesses and large organisations across the county to help their clients find the right opportunity to suit their interests, abilities and skills.
We were very lucky when Enable got in touch with us about an internship for one of their clients, Fran Foulkes, who began a supported internship at Maesbrook in 2017.
Fran’s caring and empathetic nature made her a great fit for Maesbrook, and she quickly established a wonderful rapport with our team and our residents. We’ve been especially impressed with Fran’s commitment and work ethic, both of which are important qualities for working in care.
After completing her internship, we were delighted to offer Fran a permanent, part-time role as a general support worker, which includes assisting our residents with activities and meals, and we’re proud to have Fran as part of our family.
