drp Supports Local Charity ASPIE
We have been collaborating with local charity ASPIE and the National Autistic Society to provide workshops, tours and work experience to young adults and adults in the area. ASPIE is a charity based in Worcester, which works with people who have Asperger’s and Autism, helping them with social and educational support. Only 16% of adults on the autistic spectrum are in full-time, paid employment.
Currently, we employ Fergus Tranter on work experience for one day a week in the drpdigital team. Fergus initially joined us for a 4-week placement, however he has been happy and felt comfortable in his time with the company, so we have extended his placement to July and potentially further. We will also be hosting monthly workshops in Bromsgrove starting this month (May), which will enable the members who do not feel comfortable going to their office to still get a feel for the work experience.
