We believe that a learning disability shouldn’t stop anyone from having a paid job. So we’ve teamed up with Mencap, who provide support to those with learning disabilities, helping them live life as they choose.
Through our partnership, Mencap can give people with learning disabilities the training and experience to start working at Asda. They also help with CVs and interviews, as well as provide people with Job Coaches for when they start their career. These Job Coaches work with our Store Managers to create Individual Learning Plans, which will help give people the training and support to excel.
Of course, not every learning disability is the same. Which is why, on top of the face-to-face coaching and on-going support, Mencap create Individual Support Packages for everyone they help.
