GET TO KNOW US
The Fenner Frost Foundation (charity number:1167049) was set up to support people with a learning disability to develop the skills required to access paid employment opportunities.
The Fenner Frost Foundation provides meaningful retail opportunities for students. Supported to set up a retail business in a high street location, they will be involved in all aspects of running a shop. They will be assisted to identify and source stock, serve customers (both face to face and online), handle money and undertake general shop duties.
Students will typically undertake a three year programme, depending on their level of need. The Fenner Frost Foundation, and its service users, will also forge links within the local community. They will raise awareness of the positive contribution that people with learning disabilities can bring to the work place.
