Douglas House is always keen to promote a good work ethos as it promotes independence and introduces our young people to working life.
One young person completed 8 months of voluntary work at a local stable yard, before beginning his first paid job in June 2022. They are doing an amazing job and even offered to work extra days during half term.
Another young person was recently invited to do some leaflet dropping for a local barber at the weekend.
One of the staff at Douglas House had seen the job advertisement on social media and contacted the owner, asking if our young person could be considered for help. Steve, the gentleman who owned the barbers had some discount vouchers to deliver around the village and asked us to meet him at the shop.
As a young person who is non-talkative and has been diagnosed with autism, this is a massive step. We’re thrilled to say that they did an amazing job, interacting with the team and were invited back to work again the following day.
The young person loved having that extra pocket money and all the staff are extremely proud of both young people at Douglas House.
Amazing work everyone, a proud moment indeed.
