DFN Project SEARCH graduate Alex shares her inspirational story with Rooftop News
We are delighted that former DFN Project SEARCH graduate Alex has shared her amazing journey into employment with Rooftop News for their Real Voices series.
Alex’s story is one of amazing determination and drive, which is highlighted in her words as she says: “Advice I would give to any other young person in my position is to not give up and keep looking, because there will be a place for you. Look into your options, as you don’t just have to go through this alone, and you could do a Supported Internship or there could be services such as DFN Project Search who can help you into employment. “
In addition to Alex’s story about getting into employment, the article also features Maxine, who is the DFN Project SEARCH job coach at London Heathrow Marriott, who explains why it’s so important to give young adults with learning disabilities the chance to work.
