A charity in Watford was visited by the Minister of State for Disabled People this week.

Mike Penning MP visited Watford Workshop, which provides work experience, skills training and employment for people of working age with physical, mental and sensory disabilities and/or learning difficulties.

More than 60 disabled and disadvantaged service users attend the Workshop over the period of a year under two schemes - health and community services and work choice.

The Minister commended the workshop’s recent success in assisting two disabled people to obtain full time employment at Morrison’s recently opened Watford supermarket and emphasised that continued efforts must be a priority.
