Disabled Welwyn Garden City charity PASS on advice to minister

YOUNG disabled people have welcomed a Government minister to Times Territory, to talk to him about the barriers facing them when it comes to finding work.

Labour peer Lord Tony Young visited Brownfields in WGC to meet apprentices from Hertfordshire PASS (Personal Assistant Support Service), a charity that helps disabled young people gain more independence through employment.

The visit was organised by Hertfordshire PASS and the Alliance for Inclusive Education (ALLFIE) on the same day that the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Bill was being debated in the House of Lords.

If passed, the Bill would ensure young people achieving five GCSEs would be entitled to an apprenticeship.
