Jodie lives with her parents and comes to the Grange for Skills and Activities sessions and Lucy lives onsite in our Supported Living Service. They have both made the major move from work experience to part-time paid jobs at the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SABP) office in Leatherhead.

Jodie works two afternoons a week in admin while Lucy works twice a week on Reception. Both have gained good reports from their managers.

The posts began as work experience placements and The Grange’s Work Experience Co ordinator worked together with SABP to create the paid jobs. Lucy gained experience on The Grange's reception desk first to get into practice.

It suits me because I like to be organised in my work.
