Regular employment for disabled people
The company employs people with a range of disabilities which would normally preclude them from having regular employment. Without the opportunities provided by employers like ableandwilling, many disabled individuals would not be able to experience the dignity of work that many of us take for granted. The company aims to provide valuable experience that may help prepare their employees to make the move into main stream employment.
