A spokesperson from the Entrust Care Partnership said: “Pathway to Employment supports people with additional needs to gain employment and greater independence.

"The Reaching Communities grant will be used to fund two staff members to work with people with additional needs and local employers to create inclusive work opportunities in Warwickshire.

“The Pathway to Employment initiative provides real work experience for trainees in community cafes, supported by experienced staff.
