Project Search

    Project Search Program

    In September 2018 Queensmill started a one year transition to work Project SEARCH internship program for young people with autism and learning difficulties. This is in partnership with Chelsea & Westminster Hospital Trust and based at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, London.

    This is an exciting opportunity for young adults aged 18-24 to develop their skills within a real working environment and progress into employment.  The interns will also work towards a qualification which is an ASDAN Award in Employability.

    This is now our second year and we are delighted to report that we have 2 interns who are now employed at the hospital and more on the way.

        

    In the photos above one young person has taken on a role in the Health Records Department where he is very much part of the team, and one is working for ISS Utilities within the hospital as a Kitchen Assistant. Parents are reporting that these young people are so much happier now that they are in work.

    Please also see our intern Mardon in the NWL HCSW Newsletter below.  See pages 8 and 9 - Project SEARCH Spotlight on Volunteering and Internships.
