Gablecross welcome their next workfit candidate

At the end of 2018 the police team at Gablecross welcomed their second Swindon WorkFit placement. Vivian has a twelve month work experience placement at Gablecross Police Station working on the front desk. 

Jonathan, our WorkFit Liaison Officer, worked closely with the team that support Vivian, providing training and guidance ahead of her start. Jonathan’s role is to help employers to unlock the potential of people with Down’s syndrome in the workplace.

Vivian has been assigned an in-work buddy who will work alongside her in her role. Joe Beattie who heads up the in-work buddy system at Gablecross, said “The WorkFit training has been invaluable. It has given us a better understanding in general about Down’s syndrome.”
