Three Linkage service users are now employed by Fenland Laundries, the Louth and Skegness-based company which picked up the Linkage Bateman Award for Employer of the Year last month for the second year running.
Richard Gascoigne works in Production, Michael Hallam as grounds assistant, both at Louth and Gareth Kent who joined the Stores Team at Skegness make up the trio.
According to an article in Fenland’s internal newsletter for Summer 2013:

“All three thoroughly enjoy the few hours of paid work they do each week for us, taking a lot from it in terms of their life skills development. Richard, Michael and Gareth also do a grand job, have made good friends in their working teams and we are very glad to have them with us!”

Linkage is in talks to develop the support further by offering more work experience.
